Adding to the unique charm of Port Townsend’s historic core are century-old tunnel areas under some of the sidewalks. The sidewalk lids were deteriorating and structurally unsound.

In the spring of 2012, SCJ Alliance designed and managed the city’s major project to enhance the downtown streetscape and rebuild the tunnel lids. (See SCJ’s April 27, 2012 Blog post for more info)

As a sub to SCJ, Port Townsend’s Main Street Program kept the economic wheels in motion during construction with their award winning “Light at the End of the Tunnel” public outreach and marketing campaign. Their outstanding job earned them well-deserved recognition.
