Butler Street Boat Ramp
Lake County, FL
CPWG Engineering was engaged by Lake County to provide permitting and design services for enhancements to the Butler Street Boat Ramp and parking area. The intent of the project is to prepare construction documents and to prepare the St. Johns River Water Management District (SJRWMD) Permit. The goal was to improve the existing parking lot through a combination of resurfacing the old lot and extending the lot by creating new parking to the west.
The CPWG design for the parking area included:
- 1.5” asphalt overlay on existing pavement
- Added paved trailer parking (40-ft in length) in the grassed area to the west.
- Restriped entire parking area
- Provided stormwater treatment
- Provided lighting/photometric recommendations
- Provided a 3-rail fence around the perimeter (wood)
- Painted and reused wheel stops in good condition. Replaced broken wheel stops
- All new signs (signs were provided and installed by the County)
- Addressed ADA issues such as (truncated domes, pedestrian signs, restriping crosswalk, etc)
- Existing sidewalk was pressure washed and any cracked sections removed and replaced
The CPWG design for the boat ramp area included:
- Resurfaced boat ramp with 2.5” asphalt
- Restriped the boat ramp area (staging area, stop bar, etc)
- All new signs (include new sign “Boat Staging Area No Parking”)
- The old fence on both sides of the boat ramp was replaced. Existing fence in good condition was removed and reinstalled to provide a level top line
- Wood bollards were removed at all locations. A rope fence was provided in its place
- Performed maintenance on the floating dock (such as cleaned metal dock, installed new bumpers, installed new slip resistance stripping where needed, etc)
- Provided location for a prefabricated waterless restroom.
An SJRWMD Environmental Resource Permit (ERP) permit for the construction of expanded parking area was submitted. After the project was completed, the construction completion certification paperwork was provided to SJRWMD. CPWG, with the assistance of Lake County Parks, submitted the necessary Lake County building and/or site permits.
CPWG subcontractors provided topographic survey and geotechnical boring information. Our team assisted the Lake County Parks staff by preparing purchasing documents, attending pre-bid meetings, responding to RFI, attending site meetings, and providing a final site inspection.
