Port, County Cut Ribbon on Port of Wilma Road Project

Paving concluded this month on Wilma Drive, the local access road that serves 17 Port of Wilma tenants

CLARKSTON, WA — Today, Whitman County and the Port of Whitman County cut the ribbon on their joint project to repair and rehabilitate the original road at the Port of Wilma.
 
In 2020, the Washington State Community Economic Revitalization Board awarded Whitman County a $750,000 loan and $250,000 grant to improve Wilma Drive, the local access road that serves 17 Port of Wilma tenants. Original to the Port’s construction in the late 1970s, the road was approaching the end of its useful life.
 
In August 2021, the Port of Whitman County accepted Knife River Construction’s bid to complete the road repairs. The work was completed earlier this month. Improvements include reconstruction of some road elements, individual site access improvements, safety and drainage improvements and signage.
