Park contract awarded to Tacoma firm

Olympic National Park officials announced last week they have awarded a $2,220,924 construction contract to Advanced Technology Construction from Tacoma to replace eight guest cabins and construct a new manager’s residence at Log Cabin Resort at Lake Crescent. The deteriorated guest cabins were likely constructed in the 1930s and many of them came from other resorts that previously operated around the lake. The new cabins will be constructed from log cabin kits. The project also includes road, parking, and utility improvements associated with the new cabins. See
