Groundbreaking: Hoofers Dock and Deck Replacement

The Wisconsin Union will hold a small groundbreaking ceremony for the Hoofers Marina project on September 15 at 10:30am.

New piers will improve safety and increase access to all Hoofer watercraft. This will improve the safety, accessibility, and utility of the sailing piers and help ensure that the next generation of Hoofers have well-functioning equipment to hone their skills in sailing. A new park and greenspace will complete the multi-year, multi-phase Lakefront Gateway project.

This project is managed by UW-Madison Facilities Planning & Management in collaboration with the State of Wisconsin Department of Administration, Division of Facilities Development and Management.
