Michels replaced a 270-foot wide, 12-lane boat launch. The three-month project started in April and required at least two lanes to be open for launching during the repair process.
Michels replaced a deteriorated articulated concrete pad with 8-inch thick cast-in-place concrete panels. The replacement panels were 6 feet wide by 18 feet long and were set at depths between 7 to 12 feet to allow for eventual dredging. A 2-foot cut-off wall was designed and installed beyond the panels. The concrete panels were set at pre-determined angles with variance tolerances of one half-inch.
