I am sure you have noticed all the construction east of Whittier if you boat of out his port. I was curious, so I called the harbor for more information. They really could not tell me much, and referred me on to the city office, where I spoke to a nice lady about this project. I asked what the plans were for this, and she really did not know what would be done once the road was in place. She did offer that they will not be going all the way to Shotgun Cove, since there are some big ravines that they cannot get across. She said maybe they would be stopping at Emerald Cove.
She did say they were having a ribbon cutting today at 4pm and Don Young would be there for that.
She wanted to know who I was with, and why I was asking, and I said that I am a boater that has been waiting for many years for a slip and I was hoping that they would develop a harbor there so I could get a slip. Her response was for me to not hold my breath, and that she thought it would be at least 20 years before there was more harbor space.
I find it hard to believe that they are building this road with no plan or use, or even a sure destination for it, but then I remember that it is the government, and it kind of makes sense. If anyone has better or additional information, please post it. I would love some someone to attend the ribbon cutting cerebration and see if anyone has a plan for what they are trying to accomplish.
