Ferry service update
November 25, 2021
The ferry Oscar B. this week carried some construction equipment which is being used to assist a contractor making improvements to the landing ramp at Westport. Ferry service has been closed as crews work on the Westport ramp and dredge the slough near the landing.
"According to Clatsop County Public Works, the project is proceeding," Wahkiakum County Public Works Director Chuck Beyer reported this week. "The anticipated re-opening date is assumed to be Dec. 9 as previously stated. "The ferry crew is conducting maintenance, cleaning, and training," Beyer said. "In addition, they have been taking the ferry to Westport so that Clatsop County may work off of the ferry deck for needed ferry terminal repairs.'
