Crescent City has a working harbor with many opportunities for visitors to learn about fishing and the history and culture of the region. Alta designed a wayfinding and interpretive sign system that will clearly direct visitors to many attractions within the harbor.
Alta collaborated as part of a project team for the Crescent City Harbor District to redesign the harbor to be a welcoming place for visitors. Alta focused on the wayfinding and interpretive elements from conceptual design to full construction documentation. In addition, Alta completed an alignment study and conceptual designs to determine where the waterfront promenade and California Coastal Trail (CCT) routes should be located within the harbor district property. The promenade and CCT routes are distinguished with wayfinding elements that are unique to each route, while complementary to the overall harbor design.
