Beginning Monday, October 19, 2020, the Black Pearl Boat Ramp at Fisherman’s Wharf, located at 600 Indian River Drive near Seaway Drive, will be closed to the public for dock reconstruction and replacement. The boat ramp is anticipated to be closed for 6 to 8 months for the completion of this project.
Through an interlocal agreement between the City of Fort Pierce and St. Lucie County, this project will include the demolition of the existing boat ramp and wooden docks and the construction of a new wider boat ramp with a floating accessory dock. The current wooden docks will undergo complete reconstruction and widening as well. In addition, 34 feet of bulkhead and sheet pile wall will be reconstructed adjacent to the ramps for support and enforcement.
