The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is seeking public comments on the draft environmental assessment for the proposed Wahkiakum Ferry federal navigation channel realignment and widening.
The channel is in the Columbia River at river mile 43.5 in Wahkiakum County, Washington.
This proposed action would realign and widen the existing channel to accommodate the continuous, safe and reliable use by Wahkiakum County’s new, wider and longer ferry, the M/V Oscar B.
The new channel configuration would provide the ferry a wider turning radius to and from the Puget Island ferry berth.
