The Town of Frisco is inviting the community to celebrate the completion of the “Big Dig” and Phase One projects at the Frisco Bay Marina. This project is part of the Marina Master Plan, which was approved in June 2018 by the Frisco Town Council. The public is invited to join Frisco Mayor Gary Wilkinson and the Frisco Town Council at the Frisco Bay Marina, as they celebrate the completion of the “Big Dig” and Phase One projects, which are anticipated to positively impact the Frisco Bay Marina for generations.
The “Big Dig” involved significant excavation of the lake bed in the Frisco Bay to improve navigation; lengthen the boating season; and expand recreational facilities at the Marina. The grade in the bay was lowered by up to 13 feet in some areas. 85,000 cubic yards of dirt were moved as part of this project, creating four acres of new land and a spacious new gangway. These improvements provided for a greater separation of motor and paddle sport uses in the bay and on land.
Phase One of the project included relocation and construction of a boat ramp in a new location. The new ramp has three generous lanes, rather than the previous ramp’s two narrow lanes. The beach was also significantly expanded; the new beach is 400 feet long, compared to the old 50 foot long beach. New walkways/promenades and railings were also constructed along the shore.
