Port of Tacoma’s Local Economic Development Investment Fund helps historical society restore 88-year-old Browns Point Lighthouse.
Working in partnership with the Puyallup Tribe of Indians and their Historic Preservation Office, the Port of Tacoma has completed the first phase of its new Lower Wapato Creek habitat restoration site. This project has restored nearly 20 acres of wetland and forest buffer to create an enhanced environment for fish, birds, and other local wildlife.
Construction on the Lower Wapato Creek Habitat Project continues with an eye toward making great habitat for salmon. With that in mind, two 60-inch culverts are being replaced by a 30-foot creek bed and what was a ditch is being turned into acres of thriving estuary.

The Port of Tacoma is pleased to share that the Northwest Seaport Alliance has partnered with Savage and Union Pacific on a new railport in Pocatello that will help to connect Idaho’s agriculture producers and shippers to the international market.
