Tuesday: Beautiful day at the Port of Everett Seaport!
Tuesday: Tuesday Trivia: Does anyone know what that big pile of concrete is going to be used for near Waterfront Center?
Wednesday: Answer: That pile represents the concrete associated with about 11 old buildings located in and around the former Everett Shipyard Site. The pile is about 4,500 cubic yards, and the material is being recycled for use as engineered road base for the waterfront redevelopment. By recycling the material, it will save the Port from having to buy road base, and it reduces our carbon footprint by keeping truck traffic off the roads!
Thursday: Pigeon Creek Trail is closed for city repairs now through February 14. We are sorry for the inconvenience, especially since it is actually nice out. But, you can always come down and walk at the miles of waterfront walkway at our marina …
