Lighthouse Marine dock set to go into water

The dock is set to go back in at Lighthouse Marine Park, this time built to last.

Whatcom County Parks and Recreation design and development director Rod Lamb said the remanufactured wave attenuation chambers for the dock were in the hands of contractor H.B. Hansen and would be delivered to the Point on June 27.

“We plan on installing the dock that week or the week after,” he said.

The dock failed a month after it was installed last summer under moderate wind and wave conditions. The wave attenuation chambers have been redesigned and remanufactured to be able to handle typical weather at the site, and all parties have split the cost of the fix.
