New Coho lease
VICTORIA — The British Columbia Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure has signed a three-year lease extension with Black Ball Ferry Line, operator of the MV Coho ferry between Port Angeles and Victoria, for its dock and terminal in Victoria's Inner Harbour.
Extending the lease to 2016 will allow the provincial ministry and Black Ball time to develop a long-term plan for the wharves, officials said.
The ministry said it will conduct an engineering assessment of the wharves used by the Coho — and the Victoria Clipper passenger ferry boats to Seattle — to determine their condition, remaining lifespan and what repairs are needed.
This information will be used to develop a plan for these assets, based on the scope and cost of repairs.
The ministry took responsibility of the Belleville Street ferry terminal properties last Tuesday as part of the dissolution of the Provincial Capital Commission in a cost-cutting move.
