Port of Pasco's shoreline project delayed

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash.—The opening of the Port of Pasco's shoreline project has been delayed.  It was expected to be complete a few weeks ago, but rain made installing irrigation tough.

Grass seed was put down on the 110acre development Thursday.  Now workers are just waiting for it to grow before the grand opening on June 9th.

"This is such a treasure for us to have a whole undeveloped ground that we can develop into something nice for the public to enjoy and increase economy and bring more jobs and businesses into our community," says Randy Hayden, Project Manager.

There was a bit of controversy over the removal of hundreds of trees along the shoreline, but Hayden says they've planted dozens of new ones.
