Waterfront walkway making progress towards tourist season debut

A weekend off work on the walkway between the Atlin Terminal and
Northland Cruise Terminal offers up a good indication of the progress
of the Cow Bay area project

One more piece of an ever evolving Cow Bay Waterfront area is making some good progress as work crews continue to bring the walkway between the Atlin and Northland Terminals towards final completion.

The Atlin Promenade project broke ground earlier this year, the design work offering up the prospect of another vantage point for harbour watchers to congregate once work is complete.

The timeline for the project has hopes for an opening just in time for the 2018 Cruise Ship season, which gives workers a six week window to put it all together before the Radiance of the Seas and its 2500 plus passengers and crew arrive, providing for the first test of the connection between the two terminals.

The Atlin Promenade is the latest stage of what could be a major redevelopment of the Atlin Terminal area, work began last year on the parking area of the Cow Bay district, transforming a portion of that space into a pedestrian plaza of sorts.

The Port of Prince Rupert introduced a wide ranging blue print for the area a few years ago, however there have not been any updates to that master plan in over a year now.

You can review some of the background to the current project from our item of January.
