Harper Pier reopening set for Jan. 16

harper docknew-and-improved Harper Pier should open to the public by the middle of next month.

A ribbon cutting is set for 10 a.m. Jan. 16. U.S. Rep. Derek Kilmer will attend.

Contractors hoped to have the new dock ready by the end of the year. But Port of Bremerton Facilities Maintenance Manager Lamarr Wright said progress has been slowed because a shipment of electrical fixtures hasn’t arrived.

The delivery was held up by the labor disputes disrupting shipping at Puget Sound ports. The same labor disputes forced container ships to anchor off South Kitsap this winter.

So it’s possible the electrical fixtures for Harper Pier were bobbing just offshore…

container shipWright said Harper Pier is still on track to be completed by Jan. 15, within the original projected timeline for the $1.3 million project.

The Friends of Harper Pier page on Facebook is a good place to keep up on Harper news and find lots of cool pictures of the new structure.
