WESTPORT — The Westport City Council voted Tuesday night not to support a proposed bridge across Grays Harbor between Ocean Shores and Westport.
City Attorney Wayne Hagen advised the council not to lend the city’s name to the proposal from a group calling itself the Speake Federal Reservation. It is not a federally recognized tribe.
KBKW reports the group wants to build a toll bridge to cross about four miles of open water on the Washington Coast. It would save travelers between Westport and Ocean Shores a 46-mile drive.
A ferry once made the Grays Harbor crossing, but has not run for years.
