Port Angeles: Graving yard negotiations under way

PORT ANGELES — Port of Port Angeles officials met with state Department of Transportation officials for the first time Tuesday to begin real estate negotiations for locating a proposed multimillion-dollar graving yard on waterfront property.

“It’s a negotiation over use of the facility and the associated issues,” Transportation spokesman Lloyd Brown said Wednesday.

Those issues include the cost of locating on about 12 acres adjacent to Daishowa America mill, what the graving yard site would look like and whether Transportation would buy or lease the facility, Brown said.

“The DOT will continue to work with the Port of Port Angeles, and at the same time we will work with Concrete Tech in Tacoma,” Brown said.
