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 Port Manager David Doeringsfeld told port commissioners on Wednesday that $20,000 will be used to repair a crack in the frame.

He says another $15,000 will used to refurbish the engine.

The cost of coordinating the work will add another $15,000.

The port handled 4,439 containers in 2013.

The port in northern Idaho is the most inland seaport on the West Coast.
