The Port of Camas-Washougal closed the breakwater dock at Parker’s Landing Marina on Monday, Feb. 14, to begin a construction project that is expected to be completed in early June.
The Port will replace its breakwater access ramps, which are not compliant with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards, with wider, “acceptably sloped” ramps, according to a news release issued by the Port, which expects to re-open the dock on Friday, June 3.
The ramps, which will be 7 feet wide to allow for a small utility vehicle to access in case of emergencies, will be connected by three concrete platforms.
“Each will feature benches for those who wish to rest and enjoy views of the marina and Columbia River,” the press release states.
The electrical lines along the breakwater dock will also be removed and relocated through conduit mounted to the dock.
“There are six existing electrical pedestals on the breakwater transitory dock, and this project will provide eight additional pedestals,” the news release states. “Electrical capacity will be increased in the service panel to allow for expansion in the future. The new electrical system will also incorporate current leakage detection. The project will extend the water connection point from the park to all new and existing electrical pedestals. A fire department connection will be installed for additional fire safety.”
The Port received planning and construction grants awarded from the Boating Facilities Program in 2019 and 2021, respectively, to fund the project.
