Baldwin County Boat Launch in Orange Beach shoots for early 2022 opening
Orange Beach, AL – (OBA) – Boats could be launching from the Baldwin County ramp in Orange Beach in early 2021 if crews are able to stay on track with the finishing touches, County Engineer Joey Nunnally said. In May 2021 projections were for a Memorial Day opening in 2022.
“Right now, we are projecting we should be ready for opening – of course it’s all-weather dependent and we don’t hit a snag or have another global pandemic or supply chain issues – in early February,” Nunnally said. “It’s a 120-day contract and we’re about 72 days into it. We’re about halfway done from a budgetary standpoint so all of that’s kind of matching up pretty good.”
