Crews work on Thursday to dismantle the loading dock at the site of the former Rayonier pulp mill in Port Angeles. Workers began removing about 800 concrete dock panels this week as a step toward dismantling the 6-acre pier at the former Rayonier property 2 miles east of downtown Port Angeles. The target date for completion is July, while more than 5,000 creosote-treated pilings will not be taken out at least until 2023 as part of the overall environmental cleanup of the 75-acre former industrial site's uplands and adjacent harbor waters, a process overseen by the state Department of Ecology and paid for by property owner Rayonier Advanced Materials.
