A huge orange crane perched on a large barge is hard at work in the Seward Harbor. The old D Float, built shortly after the 1964 Great Quake destroyed the original harbor, is being removed. The old creosote pilings will be replaced by new metal pilings which are expected to arrive within the next 10 days. The new dock is already here waiting its turn to be installed. The new D Float is expected to be completed well before the January Polar Bear Jump, with the exception of the electric work.
The A, B, and C Floats also date from the post earthquake days. Bit by bit, the Seward Harbor is getting much needed upgrades.
