The Port of Hoodsport is excited to announce that it has been awarded $41,000 in capital funding from the State of Washington’s 2024 legislative session. The funds were allocated for the Port’s emergency repairs of the public pier and dock. This is great news for the entire community! Local business owners and community members rallied together in endorsing the Port’s capital budget funding request for assistance with emergency repairs so that the dock could be reopened for public use.

The local dock and pier, in the heart of our small, rural community, serves Hoodsport as an emergency, economic and outdoor recreational asset. The repairs are scheduled to be completed by late spring, prior to the opening of shrimping season in May. After emergency repairs are complete, the Port of Hoodsport will be working on a plan to completely replace the pier and dock in the coming years. The Port will continue to keep the community updated as we make plans and progress with the project.

The Port Commission would like to thank each one of you for your support and strong advocacy for the Port dock in the Hoodsport community. If you would like to contribute to the future dock repair and replacement costs, fill out the donation form.
