Removal of the siding and roof structure have been completed. New metal siding and masonry accents will be added in the next three weeks, followed by installation of the new roof within the first two weeks of October. The estimated completion date of this project is the third week of October. Public restrooms remain open. No traffic modifications expected.
The Port of Kalama wishes everyone a safe and happy holiday weekend!
The exterior facelift is underway at the former Port of Kalama administrative offices. JH Kelly, LLC will complete siding removal the week of August 24th. New roof trusses will be set in place, Friday, August 28th. This work will require a crane and there will be intermittent traffic delays, particularly in the morning.
The project is expected to continue through the fall. The building, which was constructed in 1975 and expanded in 1991, will share the same exterior features as the Port’s new administrative offices. The Port recently constructed—and moved into—the new administrative building which replicates a traditional waterfront warehouse of the 1800s. To create some design consistency, the exterior and roofing of this building will be treated similarly.
Regarding the exterior facelift at the former administrative office, JH Kelly, LLC is currently removing the existing siding. There are large plastic barriers installed to prevent debris escape and the process of the siding removal is expected to continue through August.
Expect no road closures.
