Upgrades to Rosedale Beach Boat Ramp
near Millsboro completed ahead of schedule
Ramp ready for boating public over busy Fourth of July weekend
DOVER (July 1, 2015) – DNREC’s Division of Fish & Wildlife announced today that upgrades at the Rosedale Beach Boat Ramp near Millsboro are now complete, in time for the busy Fourth of July holiday weekend. The work, which started June 24, was completed June 26, five days ahead of schedule, with full access restored to the boat ramp.
Upgrades to the ramp include replacing dock walkways, installing floating aluminum courtesy docks, ramp repairs and filling a large hole at the end of the ramp. The hole was created by power loading boats at the ramp, a practice which the Division of Fish & Wildlife advises against. With proper care from the boating and angling public, the upgrades to amenities at the Rosedale Beach Ramp will provide enhanced boat launching in Sussex County for many years.
