Port of Everett Upgrades Underway

IMCO General Construction, Inc. has begun works on a $2.55 million construction contract to upgrade the Port of Everett’s South Terminal, strengthening the wharf to support roll-on/roll-off cargo operations. 

This major infrastructure investment, made possible through a grant from taxpayers of Washington State, will strengthen 140-feet of the 700-foot dock to create a ‘heavylift’ pad in the northwest corner of the South Terminal wharf.

All work will be conducted in accordance with the City of Everett’s noise ordinance. In-water work will wrap up by Feb. 15, 2015.

Work is expected to be complete in May 2015.

The South Terminal wharf was originally constructed in the 1970s with a working load capacity of 500 pounds per square foot (psf). This project will double the strength of the dock, bringing the working load capacity to 1,000 psf.

Upgrading South Terminal is vital in the Port’s ability to support machinery, heavy equipment and other breakbulk cargoes that are regularly imported and exported through the international terminal.

The Port of Everett’s Seaport operations and logistics chain supports nearly 35,000 jobs in the region and generates $280 million in taxes annually.
