WEST END: State Route 112 to be designated Scenic Byway today

>

A busload of tourism promoters takes a ride along state Route 112 today to celebrate the highway’s designation as a National Scenic Byway.

The trip starts in Port Angeles, continues to Clallam Bay and Sekiu and ends with a salmon dinner in Neah Bay.

A public dedication ceremony is set to begin at 11:30 a.m. at the Clallam Bay County Park in Clallam Bay. The event will highlight the new interpretive entry signs posted along the highway on the Clallam Bay and Sekiu sides.

The Federal Highway Administration awarded the byway honor to state Route 112 last year.

It provides an opportunity for additional grant funding to improve the attractiveness of the scenic, winding route.

The society is the caretaker of the lighthouse, under a license from the U.S. Coast Guard. Public tours are conducted from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Because of liability issues and Coast Guard regulations, the top floor, where the lens is located, will be off limits. (Steve Mullensky/for Peninsula Daily News)
