The construction crew working on the boat launch ramp at Waterfront Park will be working during the night next week.

Bainbridge officials said workers who are extending the boat launch ramp and utility lines as part of the city’s dock improvement project must complete the job during extreme low tides so that the tidelands will be accessible.

The work is expected to start after 9 p.m. beginning Monday, Dec. 4 and will continue through the early morning hours.

People who live near the city dock, or across Eagle Harbor from the project, may seen construction lights and hear noise from machinery and generators.

The nighttime work is expected to continue through Saturday, Dec. 9.

City officials said the lowest tides during winter months happen at night, and the work is being done now to avoid having the boat ramp closed during peak boating season.

The dock project will expand the city dock’s float system and boat ramp and will result in increased accessibility, city officials said.

The project is scheduled to be completed in early spring of 2018.
