 DOVER, DE. - The Augustine Beach Boat Ramp near Port Penn and adjacent intertidal beach located on the south side of the existing groin will continue to reopen periodically during the work through Thursday, Sept.18, while maintenance dredging of the boat ramp access channel continues, DNREC’s Division of Fish and Wildlife announced today.

The Augustine Beach Boat Ramp will be closed from 8 a.m. on Mondays until 5 p.m. on Thursdays, reopening from 5 p.m. each Thursday until 8 a.m. each Monday during this time frame. The boat ramp also will be temporarily reopened for the long Labor Day weekend at 5 p.m., Thursday, Aug. 28, until 8 a.m., Tuesday, Sept. 2. The Augustine Beach parking lot will remain open for the duration of the dredging project.

Weather permitting, the project is expected to be complete, with full access restored, on or about September 18.
