The Port and City of Bellingham are redeveloping 237 acres on Bellingham’s central waterfront that was formerly a pulp and tissue manufacturing facility.
A Master Plan has been approved to create a vibrant, mixed-use neighborhood with new parks and trails and thousands of new jobs.
As an important part of this development scheme, the Port has hired Tacoma-based American Construction Company to perform a $30.6 million cleanup of the Whatcom Waterway.
The project will rebuild existing marine infrastructure, restore habitat and create a significant number of construction jobs and long-term employment opportunities.
Most of the construction will be complete by March 2016.
The Port has just released this video which shows an overview of the Bellingham Waterfront Redevelopment Project:
