Contract Awarded for Port of Oswego Marina Construction

The Port of Oswego Authority (POA) awarded a construction contract to W.D. Malone Trucking & Excavating Inc. of Oswego to build its new $2.1 million deep-water marina on the site of the former Goble Dry Dock and Shipyard, adjacent to the Port’s west pier, said William Scriber, POA executive director and CEO.

The Port announced the project last November.

Phase two of the construction is expected to begin this fall and be completed by late spring of 2023.

The new deep-water marina is part of the New York State Resiliency and Economic Development Initiative (REDI), which was created in 2019 to improve Lake Ontario communities.

Under the REDI program, the Port of Oswego Authority was awarded $1.8 million to create the new marina. It also received an additional $361,284 from the Passenger Freight Rail Assistance Program for the project.

Included in the new marina will be a docking area for the H. Lee White Museum’s boat for lighthouse tours.

The Port owns the Oswego Marina, the original Port of Oswego, and is the only deep-water marina in the Oswego Harbor and one of a few on Lake Ontario on the New York side.

The historical port is also home to the H. Lee White Marine Museum, historic maritime district, and 14 companies that call it home for its domestic and international operations.
