The Alva Boat Ramp is located at 21580 Pearl Street in Alva and provides access to the Caloosahatchee River. It is currently a single lane facility with an associated parking area. The renovations include widening the boat ramp from one lane to two, replacement of the boarding dock and parking lot improvements.
The driving force behind this project is the need for improved universal accessibility at the boat ramp. The existing path between the parking area and boarding dock is not sufficient to accommodate people with disabilities of those with unsure footing. This project seeks to resolve this deficiency by providing an ADA compliant accessible route down to the boarding dock via a marked pedestrian crossing and ramp. Additionally, the project will enhance boating in the community through the creation of a facility that is more user-friendly. For example, the boarding dock will be widened and lengthened for greater pedestrian maneuverability, while drainage issues in vehicle use areas will be corrected. Also, because of growth in the area, the number of ramp lanes will be increased to two.
