    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - The CBJ is considering a project to deck-over the area between the Steamship Dock and Marine Park, where the lightering float was previously located.

    The CBJ Planning Commission recommended the assembly approve the deck-over project of 1,300 square feet in Marine Park. 

    The project will provide a continuous pedestrian path from the seawalk, through Marine Park and up Seward Street.

    This path will facilitate access from the waterfront to the Soboleff Center and to the proposed Culture Center at Sealaska Plaza.

    Construction funding is anticipated through a 2021 Capital Improvement Project request for $1.6 million.
