It was with much community anticipation that the Earle May Mega Ramp was opened on October 6, 2010. Genesis Group is proud to have assisted the City of Bainbridge and their stakeholders with this community development.

November 5, 2010 -- TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA ― With funding from the Georgia Department of Natural Resources "GoFish Georgia" program, improvements to the existing boat ramps at Earle May Boat Basin Park in Bainbridge, Georgia has raised to the site the status of “Mega Ramp.” With three double boat ramps, event parking for 120 vehicles and trailers and overflow parking for 125 vehicles and trailers, the site is ready to host large fishing tournaments while still accommodating the weekend sport fisherman.

Genesis Group reviewed the existing site conditions and provided design and permitting services for the ramps, parking, supporting day-use docks, pedestrian access, landscaping, and power and lighting. In order to accommodate the boat ramps, Boat Basin Road was re-aligned and traffic control devices designed to accommodate the revised traffic pattern.

Subconsultants for the project included Wxton and Associates who provided survey services that became the basis of the design. Pinnacle Engineering provided electrical engineering services. Environmental services and permit support was provided by Entrix, while all geotechnical investigation and testing was provided by Ardaman and Associates.
