Stehekin Winter Dock Project Reaches Completion
Contact: Kerry Olson, 360-854-7302
The Stehekin Winter Ferry Dock is now complete and in use by the Lake Chelan Boat Company ferries transporting visitors and residents of Stehekin. The new dock provides universal access for all passengers traveling on Lake Chelan via the commercial ferry system. It is part of approximately $3 million dollars in work that has been completed by North Cascades National Park Complex to improve the accessibility of Stehekin facilities and services and is the most notable improvement to the Stehekin Landing in almost forty years.
A ribbon cutting ceremony was held on Friday, May 27th to officially inaugurate the new Stehekin Ferry Dock. The million-dollar project was funded through a grant from the Paul S. Sarbanes Transit in Parks program to construct a fully accessible passenger ferry dock that improves low-water access at the Stehekin Landing. Photos of the ribbon cutting and the entire project can be found on the North Cascades National Park Flickr site at http://bit.ly/ikM4Ph.
