Dredging at Cap Sante Marina

Environmental dredging is scheduled to begin mid November at the Cap Sante Marina. Vessels moored at the northern docks at the Port of Anacortes have been moved in anticipation of the working consisting of dredging and dock repairs. Dredging will begin at M dock and progress east to N and O docks.

Testing results determined the material was unsuitable for open-water dredging. Contaminants are remnants of the lumber industry and protective vessel coatings. Approximately 5,100 CY of material will be dredged and transloaded  to rail cars for disposal in Roosevelt to relieve frequent grounding of dock floats at low tide.


Adding Value in a Hard Bid Market

Pacific Pile & Marine was recently named apparent low bidder on the Portage Cove Harbor Expansion project. The Haines Borough staff say they are pleasantly surprised by bids for construction on the first phase of the small boat harbor expansion.

“We thought we had about $15 million for construction. Pacific Pile came in with all the add alternates at $13.2 million, which left us about $1.7 million for construction to either accommodate change orders or anything that may happen with the project, or use it for further development of the harbor,” said Public Facilities Director Brad Ryan.A resolution to award the

1 Million Hours

The Elliott Bay Seawall Project team surpassed the One Million Hour mark without a lost time injury. An incredible feat.

The GC/CM project for Seattle’s Department of Transportation is the reconstruction of the City of Seattle’s downtown Elliott Bay Seawall from S. Washington Street to the southern edge of Pier 63 Aquarium, consisting of constructing over 3,393 LF of seawall, one of the largest improved ground support system ever undertaken, a new earthquake-resistant cast-in-place and precast seawall system that will support the street and right-of-way, provide access to waterfront piers, improve marine habitat, support upland uses and new infrastructure utilities.

Ketchikan Dam

Work is underway on a dam project located on Revillagigedo Island at the head of Carroll Inlet to increase hydroelectric lake storage. Water levels had to be lowered in order to access the work area.

The Swan Lake Hydroelectric Facility is a 22 MW facility with a concrete thin arch dam, intake, tunnel, penstock and powerhouse. The site is only accessible by float plane or boat. PPM was contracted to perform concrete demolition work on the spillway; construct a new reinforced concrete center pier; place reinforced concrete on the wing walls, modify and seal existing parapet walls; and install embedded
