Bellingham Marine set to revamp California marina

Reconstruction of Alamitos Bay Marina in Long Beach, Calif., which has been held up in permitting for the last few years, is expected to move forward in the spring, according to Bellingham Marine, which is contracted to work on the project.

The project calls for the complete replacement of the 1,967-slip marina over four or five years. In addition to the docks and other marina structures, the parking lots, restrooms, gangways, seawall and utilities will be rebuilt.

The Long Beach Marinas, which include Alamitos Bay and the Downtown Marinas, are the largest singly run marina system west of Chicago.

"A marina of this size comes with its own unique set of challenges," said Jim Puder, general manager for Bellingham Marine's SW Division. "We have a strong team in place and we are looking forward to providing the city and its tenants with a new marina facility that exceeds their expectations in every way."

The last hurdle for the marina is a coastal development permit from the State Coastal Commission. The city is expected to go before the commission in January.

The first phase of the reconstruction project is scheduled to begin in April.
