Renovations will begin at Portage Cove Harbor on Monday November 14, 2011. Initial work will be limited to demolition of the approach dock on the uplands, relocation of the fire hydrant, removal of the oil drums and relocation of the power pole.
Replacement of the gangway and construction of a new landing float will not begin until January.
November 10, 2011 is the 236th Birthday of the United States Marine Corps
ATVs or 4-wheelers are not allowed on the Portage Harbor boat docks. The City of Kake is working on improvements that cost a lot of money and there is also a safety issue with people and children walking around at the harbor. There is no room for motorized traffic and people at the same time.
