Curb, Gutter, and Sidewalk Installed at Harbor Access Road

We had some much needed rain last weekend. The contractor had all of their erosion control measures in place and everything in the project held up very well. The work on placing concrete curb, gutter, and sidewalk continued this week along the harbor access road. Crews placed concrete from the large wooden harbor sign, up the hill, to the intersection of Seventh Avenue.

Alert!
Access to the harbor via the trails on the east side is available again for the week!


When going down to the harbor from the Agnes Street entrance on the new Marsh Vista trail on the east side of Arana Gulch, stay to the left of the fencing at the harbor intersection and as you follow the fence around there is a pedestrian way through the fence that rejoins the DG harbor path (see photos below).

When coming up the DG path from the harbor, park visitors have a choice of going either left or right to access Arana gulch and the Agnes Street entarnce.
