New Port Angeles Coast Guard Pier

By Karen Robes Meeks

US Coast Guard and Port Angeles officials celebrated the new Transit Protection System pier and facilities in Port Angeles, Wash., earlier this month.

Situated on Coast Guard Air Station/Sector Field Office Port Angeles, the 425-foot long pile-supported pier and utility trestle can berth up to seven boats, including patrol boats and submarine, and special warfare support ships.

The project also included getting rid of the former Icicle Seafoods laydown area and a rock jetty as well as building an above-ground 10,000-gallon diesel fuel storage tank, a 200-square-foot armory and an 8,200-square-foot space with sleeping quarters for up to 30 people, according to the Coast Guard, adding that 267 jobs were created from the pier project.
