Port Angeles: Business group supports $60 million “graving yard” project


PORT ANGELES — After listening to City Councilman Larry Williams extol the virtues of a proposed $60 million “graving yard,” Port Angeles Business Association members voted unanimously Tuesday to support the project.

The members plan to voice that support in a letter to Port of Port Angeles commissioners. Members will review the letter at their Oct. 8 meeting.

The state Department of Transportation is eyeing Port Angeles as a location for a potential $60 million “graving yard” to build anchors and pontoons for the upcoming Hood Canal Bridge replacement and possibly other projects.

The bridge is scheduled to close for two long weekends in 2004 and eight weeks in May and June of 2006.
