The Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control’s Division of Fish & Wildlife announced March 21 that major renovations were completed at the division’s Seaford Boat Ramp, with floating docks replaced and the boat ramp surface repaired as boating and fishing season get underway.

The renovations complement LED lighting installed earlier by the Division of Fish & Wildlife to better illuminate the boat ramp and parking lot for safe access and more convenient use by boaters and anglers.

The new floating docks will improve boat launching and boarding, having replaced docks that had lost buoyancy and frequently required other repairs. The ramp’s deteriorating concrete apron also has been replaced, restoring a stable ramp surface and preventing undermining of the boat ramp.

The Seaford Boat Ramp renovations were funded with Delaware recreational fishing license revenues and a Federal Aid in Sport Fish Restoration grant from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Renovations at the boat ramp are the responsibility of the Division of Fish & Wildlife. The ramp is operated in partnership with the city of Seaford, which performs routine site maintenance.
