LEWISTON, Idaho (AP) — The Port of Lewiston is considering spending about $50,000 to repair and refurbish a crane used to lift containers. The Lewiston Tribune reports that the plan calls for $20,000 to be used to repair a crack in the frame. Port Manager David Doeringsfeld says another $15,000 will be used to refurbish the engine, and that $15,000 will be needed to pay for the cost of coordinating the work. The port’s crane has been used since 1974, and was fully refurbished about 18 years ago. The port in northern Idaho is the most inland seaport on the West Coast, and handled 4,439 containers in 2013. Other expenses at the port include a container dock, where $20,000 is needed to buy an engine for a forklift that moves containers.
