Portion of Statter Harbor temporarily unavailable after structural failure

November 29, 2021 – FYI, News

About 700 feet of moorage at the City and Borough of Juneau Docks & Harbor’s harbor in Auke Bay is temporarily unavailable after a structural support cable broke off around 2 a.m. Friday, November 26. The public is asked to avoid the last two fingers at Statter Harbor’s D Float for the foreseeable future. The float is about 36 years old and Docks & Harbors anticipates repairs being complete prior to the summer season.

Specifically, the main tension cable on Statter Harbor floats D-11 and D-12 failed after a strong wind event. The Docks and Harbors team responded immediately and spent the majority of Friday morning and afternoon moving about seven vessels and securing the floats. During peak use, that moorage space can accommodate up to 30 vessels.
