Olympia Port will seek bids to upgrade docks



OLYMPIA — The Port of Olympia will seek bids to replace what are the oldest and some of the busiest docks at Swantown Marina, despite cost estimates running about $250,000 over earlier projections.

The Port Commission unanimously approved a motion to so last week.

Once the bid is awarded, the project will focus on three docks known as the A, B and C docks at the north end of the marina. The A dock is the guest boat dock at Swantown, which hosts about 3,000 boat nights a year. The B and C docks are used for regular moorage.
