Vancouver Landing and day-dock at Terminal 1 will be closed to boat access and foot traffic starting Sept. 28, just before the Port of Vancouver USA begins construction work on Vancouver Landing, the western part of the Terminal 1 pier, the port announced this week.
The work involves reinforcing the deck with 20 additional steel piles to support the area in case of an earthquake, as well as changing the top deck to accommodate a future open space for the public.
“We are thrilled to be moving forward with another piece of the Terminal 1 vision while providing local jobs and economic benefit to our region,” said port executive sponsor Jonathan Eder.
After this work is done, the port is expected to add seating areas for the public and put in new underground utility infrastructure in the project’s next phase, which is set to start in the spring and finish in the fall.
