Safety priorities
By Tony Alenskis


May 02, 2006

I just can't believe with all the road work being done around the Tunnel that the sidewalk between the Old Coffee Connection north toward the Harbor's northern most entry to the dock was left its tiny (can't be legal) width.

You have to step off the sidewalk into the road to let an oncoming pedestrian get by. Soon the tour busses will be parking in their designated loading zone to compound the problem. Come on Ketchikanites let's get our safety priorities back into the picture of the future of Ketchikan. And I don't want to hear you can use the other side of the street. I could also use the Third Street bypass!
