The Sitka Assembly on Tuesday, Feb. 12, gave its approval for the Sitka Sea Walk to go out to bid. It’s expected the $1.8 million project could start construction as soon as this summer.

In a KCAW-Raven Radio story wrapping up the Assembly meeting posted on Wednesday, Feb. 13, it was noted how pedestrians trying to walk from Crescent Harbor have sidewalks end and must cross the street a couple of times on their walks to Sitka National Historical Park. The Sitka Sea Walk will make one continuous trail along the water side of the road, with some detours into the woods and with a path wide enough for a wheelchair.

To learn more about the Sitka Sea Walk project, check out our January post about the project. The post included links to the city’s project website, which features videos and other presentations showing how the Sitka Sea Walk will look once it’s completed.
