Port Townsend: Ribbon cutting planned for trail opening

PORT TOWNSEND — The opening of a one-mile segment of Larry Scott Memorial Trial will be an occasion for celebration Thursday, with a ceremony marking the new addition along state Highway 20.

The ceremony will take place at 10 a.m. Thursday along Mill Road, east of Highway 20.

Jefferson County Commissioner Richard Wojt, D-Port Townsend, and Mayor Kees Kolff will take part in the short ribbon-cutting ceremony.

Construction on the new trail segment, which runs from Mill Road to Fredricks Street, began in May.

It connects with a two-mile segment — built in the 1990s — that runs along the waterfront from Port of Port Townsend’s Boat Haven to the paper mill.

Officials plan to extend the trail to the Jefferson-Clallam county line and tie it into Olympic Discovery Trail, which will eventually link Port Townsend to Forks.
