It's not the water taxi ramp at the foot of First Street that baseball fans have been waiting for, but the Ride the Ducks
amphibious boat tour company has applied for a permit
from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to build a 180-foot boat ramp on the east end of T Street SW
in Buzzards Point. (At first I thought this was outside my self-imposed Near Southeast boundaries, but a glance at the ramp's proposed location
shows that it's technically east of South Capitol Street and in my realm after all.) There's a public comment period until August 27, so if this is something you're interested in, read the very detailed public notice
for more information and for instructions on where to forward your input.
This is not the "DC Ducks
" company that's been operating around the DC area for a number of years now--"Ride the Ducks
" currently has operations in six cities, including Baltimore.
