Marina Projects

G&H DOCKS; PILING REPLACEMENT; NEW HEADWALKS – “Pardon Our Wake!”

PROJECT COMPLETION: APRIL 2014

We thank Legacy Contracting, Inc. and Wolseley Industrial Group who worked seamlessly with one another and a myriad of other professionals (electricians, plumbers, etc.) to coordinate the timing and completion of each task in this major undertaking to improve the Marina.

Purpose of Project

This project was undertaken to improve the quality and quantity of features offered to the public who utilize the Marina area.

  • “H-Dock offered uncovered moorage for boats up to 20’ in length. This project reconfigured that dock into 14 uncovered slips for 35’ vessels.
  • The original wooden pilings were deteriorating and replaced by new 65' tall steel pilings.
  • The original headwalks (the walkways along the shoreline) were replaced with open-work fiberglass grating. The open grating allows light to access the shoreline waters and is a fish-friendly option, endorsed by the Dept. of Fish & Wildlife.
  • Engineering, Contract, and Timeline

    Waterfront Engineering, an Oregon firm, worked closely with the Port for over a year to finalize the design of the project.

    On June 4, 2013, a contract for the entire project was awarded to Legacy Contracting, Inc., in the amount of $403,949.50. Legacy is a local company with an impressive work history in other marinas.

    The floats for G and H Docks were constructed by local company Wolseley Industrial Group, located in the Port’s Washougal Industrial Park.

    The steel piling was provided by National Pipe and Piling, also in the Industrial Park.

    Piling replacement during the in-water work window of October 1 through November 30 (which is determined by the Corps of Engineers and Dept. of Fish & Wildlife) was successfully completed by the contractor. Work on the headwalks and G and H Docks began October 2013, and were completed early 2014.

    Monthly Project Updates

    April 2014

    Since June 2013, regular updates have appeared in the newsletters and on the website in an effort to keep tenants informed about the extensive projects undertaken to improve our Marina. These ongoing updates were not only helpful, but essential from a safety standpoint during the pile driving and headwalk replacement. This will be the final update. All contracted work has been completed and Port staff is wrapping up the utility work. These final tasks should not impact our tenants' use of their boats; however, for questions about the project, please contact Project Manager Jeramy Wilcox at 360-949-3904. And, THANKS FOR YOUR PATIENCE!
