Port Angeles: Graving yard soil won't go to ex-mill site, but
to west Port Angeles instead
PORT ANGELES -- Thousands of cubic yards of dirt from the state Department of Transportation's graving yard project will be trucked to a west Port Angeles quarry starting later this month.
Trucks will carry the excavated materials south and west on a state highway truck route instead of through busy downtown Port Angeles.
Jerry Moore, project manager at Transportation's Port Angeles office, said Thursday afternoon that graving yard contractor Kiewit-General indicated the dirt will go to an industrial park quarry instead of the former Rayonier pulp mill site in eastern Port Angeles.
``That's their first priority,'' Moore said.
``Rayonier is their second alternative, but that is not the direction they are going at this time.''
Kiewit-General of Poulsbo. a joint operation of Kiewit Building Group and General Construction, was awarded the $204 million Hood Canal Bridge renovation contract in June.
