Here’s a press release from the National Park Service…
FRIDAY HARBOR, Washington– More than 14 years of planning, one and half years of design and six months of heavy construction will culminate in a ribbon cutting and celebration of the Cattle Point Road Realignment Project scheduled at 11 a.m., Thursday October 15 at the American Camp visitor center, 4668 Cattle Point Road.
The ribbon-cutting ceremony—which will take place, weather permitting, at the Jackson Scenic Overlook—will include remarks by representatives of the agencies involved in the project, in addition to members of the state’s Congressional delegation, if possible, according to Jerald Weaver, acting park superintendent and Shannon Wilbur, senior project engineer for the San Juan County Public Works department.
Because of limited parking at the overlook, attendees will be shuttled from the American Camp visitor center parking area beginning at 10 a.m. Overflow parking also will be available at the Redoubt parking area, as well as along the Redoubt Road. A reception will follow the ceremony in a pavilion to be erected adjacent to the American Camp visitor center. Read More »
