Mill Bay Marina aiming for early-summer opening
Monday's heavy winds may have taken out one of the Mill Bay marina's attenuator joints, but project spokesman Duane Shaw says the small-scale damage means little to the marina's overall construction.
"It (the attenuator) is comprised of literally hundreds of connection joints, and we had one of them fail," Shaw said on Wednesday.
"To be clear, we had hurricane-force winds here on Monday morning. The marina rode out the storm extremely well. It was under construction when this happened, so that's important to note because we don't want people to think the final version will have any issues."
The marina will replace the one destroyed in a spring 2010 storm.
It's also currently the site of an archeological dig after human remains and other artifacts were uncovered above the shoreline.
Shaw expects the dig to wrap-up "fairly shortly" and currently pegs the marina's opening for some time in May or June.
