Jim; DEM did not construct any of those debacles. The Shannock access work was done by the Wood Pawcatuck Watershed Association and the town of Richmond...it was unfortunately reviewed here at DEM by folks who weren't boaters. The Coventry project was done by the Town of Coventry, designed by an engineer that wasn't up on boat access.
The current work at Jay Cronan is also being done by Wood Pawcatuck Watershed Association (DEM does not own this; WPWA does). DEM did review the project, and the previous design was far worse...concrete boat ramps, the works. It was revised at DEM's urging, and while it will be a change it should be more boater friendly than the others you mentioned. It will also formalize parking and improve stormwater erosion issues.
