Community Open House for Reconstruction Alternatives to Blaine's Marine Drive

The Port of Bellingham and City of Blaine will be hosting a Community Open House at Blaine City Hall on January 19 from 6-8 pm to discuss reconstruction alternatives for the road leading to Blaine pier at the end of Marine Drive. The road is currently closed to vehicle traffic due to structural considerations.

The port and city have developed three primary reconstruction alternatives including a two-lane road, a one-lane road, and a pedestrian and bike pathway. Under these alternatives, options are considered that include varying the width of the roadway, provisions for vehicle access, and either bulkhead reconstruction or replacing the bulkhead with a rock reinforced slope.

Port and city staff will be available at the Community Open House to explain the differences between project alternatives and discuss the estimated costs of construction. The public is encouraged to attend to learn about the project options and provide comments. Comments can also be provided at www.portofbellingham.com

Once a preferred alternative has been selected, port and city officials will pursue funding for the design and construction of the selected improvements.

A detailed engineering report and illustrations of project options is available at the link below.
