Langley marina work progresses

The first phase of the South Whidbey Harbor expansion at Langley has entered a new stage as crews near the completion of pile installation.

Workers from Neptune Marine have completed 13 out of 14 anchor piles in the harbor and will move to prepare mooring lines for the repositioning of the floating breakwater, according to an update from Port Operations Manager Ed Field.

Work on the breakwater will take place in the next few weeks. The breakwater will be rotated and repositioned, and eventually separated in two segments.

Over the next two weeks, work to install a new water main, electric ducts and other utilities will begin onshore.

The marina will be busy and Field advises the public to be cautious of workers and equipment. The project is scheduled to be completed late this year or early 2014.
