WA - Engineering firm urges replacement of Point Hudson breakwater
Port of Port Townsend commissioners to consider proposal
A preferred alternative to replace the south breakwater at Point Hudson could be under construction as early as winter 2021, an engineering firm said.
The proposal, presented Wednesday during a Port of Port Townsend commission workshop, would cost between $5.5 million and $6.5 million, and it would depend on timely permitting through the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, according to a civil engineering firm based in Seattle.
Port commissioners still have to approve the project. They could discuss it as early as their next business meeting on Feb. 26.
