HOMER — It’s all down to what Public Works Director Carey Meyer calls “the icing on the cake” — the final items on the city’s punch list for the 11,000-foot extension of the Homer Spit Trail.
The trail itself was paved earlier this month, just in time for passengers of the first cruise ship, the M/V Silver Shadow, to enjoy the trail extension. Cruise ship head tax money helped pay for the $2.26 million trail improvements.
“Gosh, a lot of the nice stuff is there. The paving. The boardwalk is awesome if anybody remembers what the old boardwalk was like,” Meyer said.
