PT Would Prefer to Wait for Island Home BoatApril 14th, 2008 by ed friedrich
Transportation Secretary Paula Hammond and Ferries Director
David Moseley visited Port Townsend Monday and I’ve been told that
they were going to be told that the community would rather wait
wait for a bigger boat than build one based on the 50-car
Now that the only bid has been rejected for a Steilacoom II boat and the job will have to be reopened, it can’t be built in time for the Hood Canal Bridge to be closed in May and June.
In that case, they may as well suffer without a car ferry for six or seven months, provided there’s a passenger ferry or some sort of mitigation, I was told.
I hope to find out more tomorrow, but I’m in the middle of a couple other stories right now.
