KETCHIKAN, Alaska (AP) - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has issued a permit for a cruise ship dock in southeast Alaska, but the dock's opening date is unclear.
Ketchikan Daily News reported Thursday that the permit was issued Tuesday for the 1,300-foot cruise ship dock in Ward Cove, about 300 miles south of Juneau.
Agency officials say the permit was issued to Power Systems & Supplies.
Officials say the project is part of a larger plan to revamp the site of a former pulp mill into a welcoming center, museum and shopping attraction.
Partners say months of construction is needed before a project-completion date can be estimated.
