Sidewalk re-Opens on Alaskan Way in Time for Summer

The Montlake Cut has Opening Day.  Kentucky has the Derby.

And now Seattle’s waterfront has the sidewalk opened on the waterside of Alaskan Way again.

“We are so pleased that Jessica Murphy and the Office of the Waterfront got the sidewalk in front of Pier 62-63 opened in time for summer,” said Kevin Clark of Argosy Cruises and the Seattle Historic Waterfront Association.

The new sidewalk is a part of the seawall replacement project and allows people to walk all the way from West Seattle to Magnolia on the water side of traffic.  It’s a great place to run, little kids to bike, dogs to walk and receive p-mail.  With no cruises nor events, it is easy to stay distant from other people, and there is plenty of free parking.

Event: On Friday, May 8, 2020, parade, procession from Ivar’s at Pier 54 led by clam will start at 9:15 AM.  Ribbon cutting in front of Pier 62 will start around 9:30 AM.  Digital storytellers welcome to attend for photo opportunity and physically distanced interviews.  Photos and video will be posted here for your use after the ribbon cutting.
