As part of long-range planning to enhance and improve the marina, Port of Kalama announces some interruption at the marina while facilities are updated

KALAMA, WASHINGTON (PRWEB) JANUARY 29, 2018

Construction activities on the Marina Renovation Project at the Port of Kalama are scheduled for February 2018 through July 2018. The Port wants the public to be aware that in the coming weeks construction activities to replace certain key features at the marina will commence:

  • Boat launch and fuel docks and floats along with the fuel system
  • Marginal floats and docks in the moorage area and guest dock
  • Power pedestals and waler boards for each slip
  • Roof structure where needed
  • Gangways and wood piling

The boat launch and fuel dock along with the fueling system are expected to be closed from approximately mid-April until the end of May, 2018. Alternative marine fuel locations along the Columbia River are available in St. Helens and Cathlamet.

The Port strongly encourages the public to sign up for email project updates here, and follow the Port on Facebook, where there will be consistent updates and information for marina users. Marina patrons can also sign up for email notices and updates by filling out the form here.

Questions can also be directed to the Port administrative office 360-673-2325 at any time. The project is expected to be completed by the end of July.

“We understand what an interruption means to our valued patrons and visitors and we appreciate your cooperation and understanding as we embark on the biggest marina renovation project since it was originally built,” says Mark Wilson, executive director, Port of Kalama. “While there will be short-term construction, we believe the end product will restore the marina so it can be enjoyed for decades to come.”
