Replace Outdated Electrical Service to Visitor Center
Sitka National Historical Park » Replace Outdated Electrical Service to Visitor Center » Document List
This project covers work to be performed by the City and Borough of Sitka's electrical department. Lincoln Street will be re-paved giving the Park the opportunity to have underground infrastructure put in the ground under the roadway to get three-phase power much closer to our Visitors Center. 900 ft. of the excavation will take place under Lincoln Street from the Sitka Sound Science Center. An underground 4 ft. square underground vault will be placed on the lower side of the power pole at our Visitors Center entrance. The ground was excavated for installation of the power pole and rock was installed below the pole. It is all previously disturbed ground.
Work will take place in the next two years to excavate to the back of the VC and extend the power to the building's boiler room. The excavation will most likely be routed on the south side of the VC parallel to the buildings sewer line.
