Dredging Underway At Port Of Everett 10th Street Boat Launch

January 7, 2022

Everett

We told you in August of last year that dredging was going to take place at the 10th street boat launch at the Port of Everett. A sandbar developed that made access to the boat launch problematic. That work is now underway along with the replacement of the restrooms near the boat launch. Here’s a bit of detail on the projects provided Thursday by the Port of Everett on social media.

Dredging has begun off the 10th street boat launch.

New restrooms are coming to the boat launch.

JETTY LANDING BOAT LAUNCH MAINTENANCE DREDGING, RESTROOM DEMOLITION TO TAKE PLACE THRU MID-FEBRUARY 2022

Port contractor American Construction Company will be maintenance dredging at the Jetty Landing Boat Launch Jan. 3 – Feb. 15, 2022.

The $1 million project is removing up to 41,000 cubic yards (cy) of river sediment that has settled in the launch basin and is impeding launch access at low tide. The Port of Everett, in coordination with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, sought and has been granted emergency authorization to expand its dredging footprint to mitigate a growing sandbar that has formed between the launch and the Snohomish River Federal Navigation Channel.

The Port will dredge an additional 9,000 cy to create a connector channel through the sandbar to ensure critical emergency access. As this dredging work is underway, the Corps is also completing their annual maintenance dredging in the upper and lower channels of the Everett Harbor and Snohomish River Federal Navigation Channel.

The Jetty Landing restroom rebuild is also starting. The nearly 50-yearold facility is being demolished and reconstructed to meet modern-day demands. Port contractor Burton Construction is to begin demolition in early January, and by mid-February begin site preparation for the new restroom structure. Sani-cans will be available on site until the new restroom is complete. Further construction phases will take place in spring 2022.
