New 24-acre park opens in Kalama for more ballparks, walking, recreation.

The Port of Kalama board of commissioners has awarded a contract for the damage assessment, clean-up and repairs at Haydu Park. The ‘time and materials contract’ was awarded to Tapani, Inc., the same company contracted to build out Haydu, for a not-to-exceed $350,000. Work at the park and on the fields begins immediately and progress will be dependent on weather.

According to Port officials, Port maintenance crews have been working to clean up roads, sidewalks and buildings from the moment the water began receding. Tapani’s work will focus on restoring the fields, fencing, and storm water and irrigation systems.

“Just as Mother Nature impacted business at the Port in December with high winds, rain and flooding, the repairs and clean-up at Haydu will be dependent on the weather and the sogginess of the fields,” says Mark Wilson, executive director, Port of Kalama. “We are eager to complete the damage assessment and to get the park reopened to the general public as soon as we can.”

General business activity at the Port will not be interrupted during this time.
