Sunday Showcase: Waterfront Trail monorail to Rayonier site?

Jerry Lamb’s dream is to make Port Angeles the home of LEVX’s first full-blown transit system.

Lamb says he has already secured 2.5 miles of right of way on city and Port of Port Angeles property at the airport for a LEVX track.

After a year of quiet, concealed research and development for patents, Lamb and his project broke back into the limelight last month when resort developer Jerry Ward labeled Lamb’s invention “magic.”

Ward proposes a 5,000-foot LEVX elevated monorail line to run along the Waterfront Trail from the MV Coho ferry terminal on Railroad Avenue east to his proposed 322-unit timeshare condominium resort on 75 acres of the old Rayonier mill site.

The project would give LEVX “great visualization” in Port Angeles and beyond.

“They always say the hardest sell is your own hometown,” says Lamb.
