An impromptu public restroom in a downtown alley is supposed to be off limits — but Sunday night it was still not blocked off.
This week, the Municipality of Anchorage agreed to pay for a gate to be put up in front of the alleyway beside the 4th Avenue Theatre and First National Bank.
The pedestrian tunnel has become known as a place for people to relieve themselves. The municipality worked with the building’s owner to put up a gate, but Sunday night there was only a partial gate. No details were immediately available on municipal plans to complete the project.
Once the gate is in place, only employees of the bank next door will be able to use the alleyway.
