The Port of Kalama in the US has awarded a contract to Bergerson Construction with regard to work on the Port T-barge Facility Project.
Work on the project is set to start at the north end of the marina next week.
The $1.13m contract, which includes Washington sales tax, will involve demolition and removal of select timber and steel pipe piles.
As part of the contract, Bergerson will place new steel piles to prepare for placement of the T-barge purchased by the Port of Kalama for creating a commercial dock space.
Port of Kalama marketing manager Liz Newman said: “We want the public to be aware of the work going on at the north end of the marina so they can plan accordingly.
“The project is the first step to installing the Port’s long-planned commercial dock facility to better serve marine commerce.”
