Timeline for North Shore Marina repairs

Posted at 4:11 PM, Jul 25, 2019

PUEBLO — There's still a lot of work to do to re-open the North Shore Marina at Lake Pueblo after a powerful storm destroyed the dock and boat slips.

Owner Connie Jack told News 5 she wants to open it up in a couple of weeks if repairs go as scheduled.

Divers have been going out there every day to check cable connections, and fix the sewers.

The middle dock at the marina is still folded onto itself and in no condition to have anywhere near it. That portion of the damage could take up to one week to repair.

Jack also said power has been mostly restored but nothing will be turned back on until the state inspects the dock to make sure it's ready to be fully operational again.

While some boat owners had the chance to haul their boats out of here, the ones left must remain here and many have had to cope with being away from their houseboats.

"People that are really concerned about their home away from home and their neighbors and their neighbor's boats. So that's our biggest challenge," Jack described.
"And we tried to be here for them. So we shuttle everyday if they want to go down and look at their boats and take whatever they need off of them."

Even after the marina re-opens, it's likely that other repairs will be ongoing throughout the summer.

As of Thursday evening, the sidewalk is still closed, and no boats are allowed to go in or out of the marina.
