Greetings Highport Members,
We are working with Marine Development Inc. (MDI) to begin installation of our new, state-of-the-art breakwater system on Thursday, June 23, 2016. This is a significant and very time-consuming project, and will take approximately 6 weeks to complete. MDI has been fabricating the enormous sections of the breakwater system for months, and will start to transport them to Highport Marina this week.
They will be utilizing the far east portion of the boat ramp for storage, assembly and water access during the 6-week construction process. Each section of the massive breakwater system will be assembled on land and pushed into the water. Then, each assembled 40′ section will be floated out to its GPS-coordinated position where it will be anchored to pre-poured concrete anchors.
Every effort will be made to minimize impact of this process on our members. But, with any construction project of this magnitude we ask for your patience and understanding if you should be inconvenienced in any way.
We have also commenced removal of the existing breakwater, and will continue to do so until all sections have been moved to the north point under the Highport Sign. Once this is complete, the breakwater will be removed from the property and salvaged. We will coordinate all efforts to make this process as seamless as possible. Note: no work will be done on the breakwater system during 4th of July weekend!
I also wanted to update you on all the repairs from the past couple of years’ drought, flood and wind damages as per my letter earlier this spring. I have again listed below all the areas of committed improvements that we have completed, are currently working on, or have planned. It’s so easy to forget how far we have come in just a few short months from the devastating damages caused by the 2014 Drought, and then the 2015 Flood and Wind Event.
It’s always a pleasure seeing our Highport Marina family enjoying the lake, and we look forward to continuing our efforts to deliver you the ultimate lake-living experience.
