"An Act naming the Joseph C. Williams, Sr., Coastal Trail. "


"This Legislation honors the memory of a highly respected member of the Native Community in Southeast Alaska, and will help recognize the Twelve Years of service to the people of the State of Alaska by his son."
- Rep. Elkins

 

If adopted, House Bill 42 will rename the three miles of trail alongside the South Tongass Highway between Ketchikan and Saxman, Alaska the Joseph C. Williams Sr., Coastal Trial.

Joe was an advocate for the construction of a trail alongside the South Tongass Highway between the Cities of Ketchikan and Saxman. Residents of these communities for many years, without the means of transportation, commonly walked the three miles between towns alongside the road with tragic results.

After the trail was completed, it quickly became a favorite walking and bicycling path used by visitors and locals alike. Set between the Ocean and the Highway the Joseph C. Williams Sr. Costal Trail is both scenic and historically important to the people of the Ketchikan Area.

Joe's son, William K. "Bill" Williams, while serving as a member of the Alaska State House of Representatives, worked diligently to obtain funding for the construction of this traditional path between these two communities.

This Legislation honors the memory of a highly respected member of the Native Community in Southeast Alaska, and will help recognize the Twelve Years of service to the people of the State of Alaska by his son.
