C & R Tractor and Landscaping, Inc. will construct roads, a roundabout, sidewalks, lighting and landscaping in the first phase of construction at Spencer Creek Business Park

The Port of Kalama board of commissioners awarded the contract for the Spencer Creek Business Park Phase 1 Improvements Project to C & R Tractor and Landscaping, Inc. of Kelso, WA. The $5,591,238.13 includes site preparation, grading, utilities, roads, a roundabout and sidewalks, new lighting and irrigation.

Contractor work at the Spencer Creek site is expected to commence in April 2019 and run through mid-summer. Traffic patterns will be impacted so the Port urges citizens to watch for signage and check the Port’s social media and blog channels for updates.

The Spencer Creek Business Park is being built as a part of the Port of Kalama’s long-term plan to diversify the region’s business and will support a mix of commercial business, retail, dining, lodging and light industrial.

Similar to the long-term build-out of the popular Kalama River Industrial Park, the Port constructs infrastructure like roads and utilities to invite business and opportunity to the community.

The Port has already invested in the recreational facility the community enjoys at East Port with the opening of Haydu Park. With the surface road project at Spencer Creek Business Park, the Port is on the way to developing the area to welcome new diverse businesses and jobs.
