It’s our nature to grow.
Each year the Port Commission adopts a capital improvement budget that supports the Port of Camas-Washougal’s mission to drive economic development, create jobs, promote commerce and provide recreational opportunities. These capital improvements include a wide range of projects, to include wetland mitigation and restoration, building construction, and continuing management of all port owned properties and facilities.
Breakwater Access Construction
The Port will replace the current non-ADA compliant breakwater access ramps with 7′ wide acceptably sloped ramps to allow for utility vehicles to access in case of emergencies. The current concrete platform will be renovated and two new will be added. Each will feature benches for those who wish to rest and enjoy views of the marina and Columbia River.
The overhead electrical lines along the breakwater dock will be removed and relocated through conduit mounted to the dock and 8 additional electrical pedestals will be installed. Electrical capacity will be increased and the new electrical system will incorporate current leakage detection. A fire department connection will be installed for additional fire safety.
East Dock Replacement
PROJECT COMPLETED – The wooden east dock was taken out of service in 2018. Mantle Industries LLC in Blaine, Washington will be providing components for a 240 ft long 6 ft wide new east dock. The dock will be installed by Port staff during the late spring or early summer of 2023.
