Turning Basin Dock Replacement

Project Description

We are thrilled to announce we are resuming the replacement of our Turning Basin docks! The new docks will provide increased river access for our community, improved docking amenities, increased safety via a new fire suppression system, and more. After a brief hiatus to accommodate an environmental permit window, replacement of the Turning Basin docks is set to resume in mid-June. Construction is expected to last from June 2024 – September 2024.

The United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) dredging of the Petaluma River will begin shortly after the dock replacement is completed in fall 2024.

What to Expect During Dock Replacement Construction

  • D STREET BRIDGE: Periodic openings June thru Sept = potential traffic delays.
  • THE FLOATHOUSE PETALUMA: The Floathouse docks will be temporarily relocated during construction to the northwestern public docks, accessible from the Water Street gate near the downtown side of the Balshaw pedestrian bridge. Visit thefloathousepetaluma.org  for more information.
  • TURNING BASIN: No access June - September.
  • NOISE & VIBRATION: Will occur in the area in June & July.

We will be sending Nixle alerts ahead of days when there will be multiple openings of the D Street Bridge to allow the community to plan to avoid traffic in the area. To register for Nixle, click HERE or text your zip code to 888777.
