When will the WPH Construction End?

The Waldo Point Harbor Reconfiguration is in the final stages, according to Dan Hughes, WPH project manager. The crew will start back to work in late spring with prepping the park site, which is now the old Gates Coop parking area. In June, when the permit allows, they will begin the in-water work, which includes building the viewing pier and restoring wetlands where the Gates Coop boats were. That work in the water will last through August and has to be complete before they can finish the park, which should be done by late fall. The final parking lot improvements will then follow.

Main Dock home moves should start this spring. The weather and tides have caused delays. Dan is hopeful the project will be all done by December of this year, with punch-list items and the remainder of Main Dock home moves stretching into 2018.

Also happening this summer is a city-led project to redo the intersection at Gate 6 and Bridgeway (see Gate 6 Intersection Update). The start date is still unknown, but floating home(s) residents can expect more disruptions during this work.
