CONCORD – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is accepting public comment on proposed work at Bass River Marina in West Dennis.

The marina is seeking permits to construct additional floating docks to support up to 39 vessels a pier, terminal platform and ramp.

The floating docks would total almost 7,000 square feet and 42 timber piles would be driven as part of the installation. The work would also require the construction of a 334-foot boardwalk between the town boat ramp and the marina. Fifty-six piles would be driven for the construction of the boardwalk.

Work adjacent to the town boat ramp would see the construction of a 51-foot pier, 16-foot terminal platform, 80-foot ramp, 24-foot landing float and 176-foot long float system. There would also be dredging of 2,065 cubic yards of material from the Outer Channel.

The project also calls for the dredging of nearly 12,000 cubic yards of material in the Marina Basin.

The deadline for public comment is March 22.
