Crane positions a steel pile

October 2017: One of the first steel support piles is positioned along the southern side of Colman Dock.

 

Today’s dock is still supported in large part by wooden piles dating back before World War II. By the time the Seattle Multimodal Terminal at Colman Dock project is complete in 2023, we will replace all of these aging piles with hundreds of steel columns designed to withstand large earthquakes.
