Renovations to Manteo boat ramp complete
The Washington Baum Bridge Boating Access Area is now open to the public
Manteo ramp is ready for fishing business
“The improved traffic flow at this site will give boaters easier, more convenient access to the Roanoke Sound, the Pamlico Sound and our state’s other coastal waters,” said Erik Christofferson, chief of the Commission’s Division of Engineering Services. “We are grateful for the money we received from sales of the Coastal Recreational Fishing License that allowed us to replace some of the failing infrastructure of this popular site, in particular some 1,400 feet of bulkhead.”
Sales of the CRFL paid for 50 percent of the renovation, while funding from motorboat registration receipts paid for the rest.
Washington Baum Bridge also has new ADA-accessible floating docks, one additional ramp for a total of five ramps and an addition of about 300 feet of boardwalk.
