The project to rebuild the jetties of the historic Point Hudson Marina will officially break ground at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 14.

The community is invited to attend the groundbreaking at the northern breakwater near the anchors at Point Hudson.

With funding from U.S. Department of Commerce Economic Development Administration, U.S. Fish and Wildlife/Recreation and Conservation Office, taxpayers of Washington state and taxpayers of Jefferson County through the 2019 Industrial Development District Levy, and Jefferson County Public Infrastructure Funds, the Port of Port Townsend contracted Orion Marine Contractors to rebuild the dilapidated jetties at the Point Hudson Marina.

The rebuild work is scheduled to start at the conclusion of the Annual Wooden Boat Festival.

This huge project is on a tight schedule that will require all Point Hudson vessels to depart during the four-month project window and again next year for the south jetty.
