Proposed renovations to the Bantam Lake State Boat Launch in Morris have been discussed by the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection. Plans are to make the launch a state-of-the-art, handicapped accessible facility.
The ramp will be replaced with a single, grooved, concrete slab surface along with a separate car top launching area. Concrete pavers will be installed along the ramp sides to prevent erosion. An ADA accessible, floating dock system will be added to make launching and retrieval of boats safer and more efficient.
In addition, a solar powered street light will be installed near the ramp to assist boaters launching or retrieving boats at night, and a protected concrete portable toilet pad will be installed.
