The Port of Olympia has been receiving questions from community members about the next steps toward constructing a fuel dock at Swantown Marina.  So what is next?

In November 2013, the Commission approved going forward with design and permitting of the fuel dock.  The next Commission decision will be whether or not to proceed with construction bidding.

Below are the anticipated timetables for the fuel dock project.
