Aberdeen-Built Pontoons Head to Hoquiam June 1

ABERDEEN, Wash. – Replacement pontoons for the State Route 520 floating bridge will begin their journey to Lake Washington this summer, but June first, they leave the casting basin in Aberdeen and make a short trip to Hoquiam.
We have the contract to get them to the Port, then there’s another contract to take them up the coast. We’re thinking WSDOT that we’re working with here will buy the pontoons within 24 hours – Project Director Phil Wallace
Wallace, with Kiewit General, told Port Commissioners on Tuesday that the six pontoons will rotate out of Terminal 4 in Hoquiam while the Washington State Department of Transportation works on towing the biggest pontoons every built 260 nautical miles around the Olympic Penninsula to Lake Washington.
