Camas-Washougal Port Awards Marina Contract

The Port of Camas-Washougal has awarded a contract for a reconstruction and maintenance project at the port’s 350-slip marina in Washougal to an Oregon-based company, Legacy Contracting.

Legacy secured the contract with a bid of just under $404,000. The work to be done includes reconstruction and replacement of aging walkways, floats and pilings.

Floats for the docks, the plumbing, pilings and electrical installation will be provided by four Washougal-based subcontractor businesses.

According to port executive director David Ripp, the window for in-water work that was approved by the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife is Oct. 1 through Nov. 30. Work done during this time includes replacement of deteriorated wood pilings with 65-foot steel pilings to help anchor the floating dock system.

“We will be able to complete this project with minimal inconvenience to our tenants and boaters during the less busy fall and winter seasons,” Ripp said.

Substantial completion of the project is scheduled for Jan. 31, 2014.

The port says it anticipates intermittent power outages during the project that will affect tenants in the upper and lower portions of the marina and that there will also be limited access to the docks during the headwalk section replacement.
Detailed information is expected be provided to marina tenants throughout the process, according to the port. Written notices of construction plans are expected to be supplemented by signage in the marina as well as information on the website project page at http://portcw.com/index.php/projects/2013_marina_projects/.
