On Tuesday, May 26th, Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) will join officials from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and the Port of Grays Harbor to celebrate the signing of the Project Partnership Agreement, which will allow the Army Corps to move forward with plans to deepen the Grays Harbor Federal Navigation Channel. In August 2014, an Army Corps study recommended the channel be deepened by two feet, from 36 to 38 feet, the federally authorized depth, which will support continued growth, economic development, and job creation at the Port of Grays Harbor. Sen. Murray worked with the Army Corps and Port of Grays Harbor to secure funding to support the channel deepening project.
