Few Anacortesans had the opportunity to watch this impressive construction project as it took place off-island. A new Anacortes water treatment facility was built adjacent to the old plant at a Mount Vernon site on the Skagit River. These photos were taken in December 2011.
What a rare privilege it was to chronicle progress on the construction of a new Anacortes Water Treatment Plant from 2011 to 2013. The plant lies on the Skagit River in Mount Vernon, with water delivered by pipeline to Anacortes, other parts of Fidalgo Island and North Whidbey clients including the City of Oak Harbor […]

Contractors are working this week at the New Wilson Hotel on Commercial Avenue, leveling floors in street-level space committed to business leases. To date, businesses include Impressions Salon and Wildflower Home and Garden. Artwork is planned on the blank wall to the left, under the auspices of the Anacortes Arts Commission.
I counted at least five new construction or major renovation projects on Cap Sante over the weekend. This photograph was taken near the parking lot of Randy’s Pier 61 Restaurant. The sound of nail guns resounds through neighborhoods all over the city, and with our moderate weather, the construction season runs pretty much year-round.
You can’t make a visit downtown without noticing the street improvement project between 10th and 11th streets. Included as part of this project is creation of a support system for an arch that will span Commercial Avenue and welcome guests to the community. Weather permitting, look for this project to take the fast track.
