Plymouth's Town Dock and Bulkhead
A new town dock helped Plymouth maximize its access to the Albemarle Sound
The Town of Plymouth, NC lies at the western end of the Albemarle Sound on the Roanoke River. With such access to the Sound, the Town undertook a project to construct a new, 9 slip fixed pier marina. The Wooten Company was asked to provide preliminary engineering drawings and architectural renderings for the project. The Plymouth Marina was designed to consist of 9 transient boat slips and to be able to accommodate boats ranging from 30 to 50 feet in length. Each slip connects to electricity and potable water, as well as has access to a sewer pump out station. The most pressing design considerations were the water depths of the river and its strong currents combined with a 100 year flood level of 7 feet. The $200,000 project was funded using a Division of Marine Fisheries Boating Infrastructure Grant and construction began in the fall of 2012.
