NW Seaport Alliance hosting Terminal 5 construction public meeting June 22
The Port of Seattle, through The Northwest Seaport Alliance (NWSA), a marine cargo partnership between the Port of Seattle and the Port of Tacoma, has approved a project to upgrade Terminal 5 to handle ultra-large container ships with a capacity of up to 18,000 containers.
The Terminal 5 Project will enhance and maintain the competitiveness of the region’s trade gateway and provide economic benefits including jobs, market access for exports grown and made in the region, and imports beneficial to the regional and national economy. Construction is expected to begin in July 2019.
A public meeting on the project which is expected to have substantial impacts on the area is being held June 22 at Jack Block Park.
Members of the Terminal 5 project team will be on hand to discuss the project, including the scope and environmental mitigation measures for noise, traffic, and air emissions.
