A unique new landmark will soon grace the gateway to Clover Island in Kennewick and bring a special feel from the past to historic downtown Kennewick.
The $1 million dollar project has been a work in progress for several years by the city of Kennewick and will finally get underway this month, thus bringing together the ambiance of the past and the function of the future – aiding the U.S. Coast Guard with navigation along that part of the Columbia River.
After completion and permiting, the lighthouse will offer visitors a chance to climb to the top and take in the view along the river. The improvements will also include a public plaza with plantings and seating. A graceful arch will be placed at the entrance to Clover Island with welcoming signage.
