City of Oswego Mayor Billy Barlow announced today the re-opening of Wright’s Landing Marina in Oswego after the marina was closed due to high lake levels and flooding due to Plan2014 and heavy rains earlier this year.

The water level along the shoreline of Lake Ontario has dropped one the last few weeks, allowing the City of Oswego to clean up and re-open the marina and boat launch.

“As promised, I am re-opening the Wright’s Landing Marina now that the water level has slightly dropped in the Oswego Harbor. The Oswego Department of Public Works has re-built new walkways and ramps to allow for safe access to our docks and boat slips despite the high water levels due to Plan 2014,” said Mayor Billy Barlow. “I’d like to thank the Oswego DPW for their constant hard work and creativity as we’ve built around and over the high water and flooding. I also appreciate the patience and understanding from the Charters, recreational boaters and tenants of Wright’s Landing Marina, realizing this situation was due directly to Plan 2014 and out of the City’s control. We will continue to work around the issues caused by the flooding and high water to keep the marina open and will work to more permanent solutions for the remainder of this season and beyond.”

The marina will officially re-open on Thursday, July 18th. The marina will begin renting boat slips for Harborfest weekend on Friday, July 19th. All questions and inquires regarding marina operation and slip rentals should be directed to the Wright’s Landing Marina at 315- 343-8430.
