Your Dollars At Work - Alcatraz Island

Alcatraz Barracks Building

Funded by your Recreation Fees, the Alcatraz Historic Structures Stabilization project completed several rehabilitation projects on Alcatraz Island. These projects removed loose concrete and rust; weatherproofed windows and door openings; repaired deteriorated roofing; and stabilized walls, floors and structures. These efforts have helped prevent further deterioration of the buildings on Alcatraz.
