Marine Drive upgrades disruptions to be discussed at upcoming meeting

By Tara Nelson

Blaine city officials have scheduled a meeting for 7 p.m. Thursday, January 19 to discuss updates to the Marine Drive reconstruction and wastewater tank installation projects.

Several major capital improvements have been planned along Marine Drive and are scheduled to be implemented within the next few years such as a new, low-impact wastewater treatment facility, an underground storage tank for wastewater, and the reconstruction and improvement of Marine Drive.

The first phase will include the installation of the underground tank and will displace a significant part of the roadway. City officials say they want to meet with business owners to discuss the projects impacts before they finalize project plans.

The meeting will be held in the Blaine Boathouse meeting room, opposite the port office. For more information, call the Blaine public works office at 332-8820.
