Current Projects

Coupeville Wharf Pile & Cap Rehabilitation Project Phase 1

We are in the beginning phase of the Coupeville Wharf Pile, Cap and stabilization rehabilitation project.  The following has been completed:

  • An updated cost structure was completed March 2019.
  • Engineering drawings for the permitting process was completed March 2019.
  • Doug Thompson of Thompson Environmental was hired July 12th to begin the permitting process.
  • Permits have been filed and approved through the Town of Coupeville and Department of Natural Resources (Yay!).
  • JARPA Permit has been filed with the United States Army Corp of Engineers and Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife and accepted on January 3, 2020.  We expect up to a year to year-and-a-half for USACE to approve our permit.

Funding – We submitted a Rural County Economic Development Grant through Island County for the full project cost, minus 10% matching, of approximately $972,180.00.  The Port of Coupeville will be responsible for $97,218.00.

***UPDATED August 13, 2019***  We were just informed that the Island County Commissioners approved our grant to support Phase 1 of this epic project!  More information to follow, but permitting has begun and the project is moving forward!  A tremendous thank you to our Island County Commissioners and many community members who supported this process and grant application!

Project Management – Please click on the link below for a Gantt Chart or Timeline of major benchmarks for the project.

Wharf Pile & Cap Rehabilitation Timeline

Kelly LaFave was hired as the lead Engineer and Project Manager for the Piles & Caps Phase 1 project.

You can see the three (3) phase cost structure of the project here:  Revised Engineer’s Cost Estimates

Though we are planning on a 2 to 3-year project timeline (2019 to 2021), it is quite possible for this project to take up to 5 years depending on permitting.

Coupeville Wharf Historic Building Rehabilitation Project Phase 2

Funding – The Port received a generous grant of $303,000 from the Department of Archeology & Historic Preservation and Ebey’s Landing National Historic Reserve to replace the roof and conduct seismic stabilization for the building foundation and walls!

We need to complete Phase 1 before we can start Phase 2, but we are hoping to complete Phase 2 by December 31, 2021.
