Northern District GSA Update: Whatcom County Ports of Entry capital projectsAdd to Calendar
Whatcom County’s three landed ports of entry (LPOE) play a significant role in commercial activities in Western Washington, British Columbia and beyond. LPOEs in Blaine, Lynden and Sumas combine for over $6.5B worth of goods going through these ports.
In the decades since substantive renovations and additions have been made to these facilities, there has been an increased number of border crossings, creating longer wait times.
Please plan to join your fellow Northern District members as we host Design & Construction Division Director Robb Gries of the US GSA Northwest/Arctic Region's design & construction division as he discusses the agency's plans for the modernization and expansion of Whatcom County’s three LPOEs.
The recently passed Federal Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) has approved over $200M in funds for the modernization of these facilities. He will address the projects' scopes and bidding opportunities, and passing along requirements for bidding these projects. Don't miss this one -- register today!
