Flying Point Park Waterside Improvements
Harford County, MD
CLIENT: Harford County Department of Parks and Recreation
Prime: BayLand Consultants & Designers, Inc.
Construction Cost: $1,000,000
BayLand was contracted to provide complete planning, permitting, design and construction management services for major upgrades to this popular Harford County waterside Park facility. The project was managed in four phases to allow for multiple funding sources and availability.
Phase I included dredging, boat ramp upgrade from a 1-launch to a 2-launch facility, two new Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessible launch docks, 300 linear feet (LF) of bulkhead replacement and minor parking area improvements with tie-in.
Phase II included a 150-foot fishing pier and a transient boat docking area that was completed in 2003.
Phase III included 750 LF of imbricated stone revetment for shoreline protection and landscape plantings.
Phase IV included expansion of the parking lot for 40 additional trailer spaces and storm drain improvements.
Construction activities were managed and coordinated with Park personnel to minimize disturbance to Park users, maintain open access to the public and ensure public safety. This project required inspection of multi-disciplined construction activities such as open drainage systems, stormwater management (SWM), grading, roads, parking, pedestrian pathways, landscaping, as well as, concrete, timber and stone structures.
Phases were funded by the Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR), Open Space Program, Community Parks and Playgrounds, and the County. All phases of the project were designed to meet ADA requirements and were completed on-time and under budget.
