The cranes as they passed by the Navy Pier in June of last year.

We told you at the end of last month about a demonstration by the Port of Everett for lighting on top of the new cranes being placed at the South Terminal. Here is the decision after public input.

The Port received nearly 120 comments leading up to, and during the demonstration. More than 86% of the comments favored keeping the current painting to satisfy the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) requirements for the cranes versus adding the red/white pulsating lights.

On February 11, Port staff presented its recommendation to retain the current painting to satisfy the FAA requirements as a result of the public feedback. After deliberation and public input, the Port Commission directed staff to proceed with the necessary regulatory requirements to satisfy the FAA safety requirements with the current painting and NOT the higher intensity pulsating white/red obstruction lights.
