Replace Fort Sumter and Fort Moultrie Docks

Fort Sumter and Fort Moultrie National Historical Park » Replace Fort Sumter and Fort Moultrie Docks » Document List

The National Park Service (NPS) proposes to replace the docks at Fort Sumter and Fort Moultrie National Historical Park. The docks at each fort are essential in transporting visitors and staff to the park.

Both the Fort Sumter and Fort Moultrie docks have deteriorated and don't provide adequate accessibility for visitors and staff. Updated docks would be able to accommodate a variety of vessel types, improve the current structures to last another 30 years, enhance visitor's experiences with safe, continuous access to Fort Sumter, and ensure administrative access to Fort Moultrie for park operations and facilities at Sullivan's Island. The NPS proposal also accounts for climate change and increasing harbor traffic projections.
