Callander Dock Reconstruction

 

After Callander’s Dock was heavily damaged by a powerful storm in July 2006, portions of it were closed to the public for several years. A new plan was developed and funding applications were made to repair the dock.

It was discovered that the old break-wall was unsuitable for building on, so a new design was made featuring steel piles and framing, and a concrete & plank deck.

Crews worked through the cold winter of 2013-2014, driving the new piles down to bedrock. The deck frame and concrete were completed by late spring. The finishing touches were added through the summer and the official opening was held in early fall. The new Callander dock even features a covered pavilion out on the water!
