Construction is underway to improve the existing stone jetty at the entrance to Mezick Pond at Sandy Point State Park. The jetty is a popular fishing spot and provides protection to boaters using the largest public boat ramp facility in Maryland.
“The jetty is a great spot for local anglers who want to enjoy a day of fishing and is a vital component in protecting the entrance channel to the Park,” said Kenny Hartman, Manager for Sandy Point State Park.
The purpose of the project is to correct structural deficiencies in the jetty and to improve access for anglers. Once completed, the revitalized jetty will sport an eight foot wide surface and a three foot increase in the average height of the overall structure.
The project is scheduled to be completed by mid-April 2011.
