Bellingham Marine recently built a new public dock on the St. Johns River in Jacksonville, Fla., the site of a popular Saturday market.

Bellingham Marine was awarded a contract in September to build the 200-foot, L-shaped dock. It features Bellingham's Unifloat concrete system. The wide, stable configuration will accommodate large crowds and provide as much as 400 feet of moorage for vessels visiting the weekly market.

There is also an informational kiosk near the dock to inform boaters and all users of the river about manatees, sea turtles, right whales and other marine life.

The opening of the new dock was celebrated March 5 with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

"The new docks and expanded access to the river are important additions for everyone, but are especially important to local boaters," said Ron Carey, manager of project development for Bellingham Marine's Southeast division and a Jacksonville resident, in a statement.
