The state has chosen a Vancouver, Washington company to demolish and remove the Japanese dock that landed at agate beach in Newport. Chris Havel with Oregon Parks and Rec says the state needed a company that could handle a complex project. Ballard Diving and Salvage will be paid just over $84,000 for the project.
The timeline hasn't been set. That will happen after the company meets again with the state.
