    Brett Nelson, Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities (ADOT&PF) Northern Region, 2301 Peger Road, Fairbanks, AK 99709, brett.nelson@alaska.gov, states the purpose is to reconstruct the Dalton Highway between MP 18 and MP 37 to improve highway safety and performance, bring the roadway up to current design standards, reduce annual maintenance costs, and improve drainage and fish passage where applicable. For the replacement of Hess Creek Bridge, the applicant’s stated purpose is to widen the bridge to accommodate passing commercial trucks operating at speeds of approximately 50 miles per hour. The proposed repairs and upgrades consist of 83.38 acres of permanent impacts from the discharge of approximately 672,201 cubic yards of fill and 23.84 acres of temporary impacts from the discharge of 5,418 cubic yards of fill into waters of the U.S., including wetlands, consisting of the following components as described in Tables 2, 3, and 4. Additional work associated with the proposed project includes the use of three materials sites located in uplands (Figures 15-b through 15-d, dated April 2022) and excavation of 66,350 cubic yards of material within wetlands. Work is proposed from October 2022 to October 2024. The beginning of the project is located at Dalton Highway Mile Post (MP) 18 at approximately Latitude 65.601411° N., Longitude 149.066394° W.; the end of the project is located at Dalton Highway MP 37 at approximately Latitude 65.759015° N., Longitude 149.375873° W. The project site can be reached by taking the Elliot Highway north out of Fairbanks, Alaska for approximately 82 miles to the start of the Dalton Highway and continuing along the Dalton Highway for approximately 18 miles, approximately 100 miles north of Fairbanks, Alaska.

    Hammer and Wikan Inc.; Point of Contact: Jim Floyd; Phone: 907-772-4811, states purpose is to expand the existing warehouse of the grocery store and the sales floor. The current need has exceeded the capacity of the current location. The existing grocery store supplies 90% of the island’s population of essential food products. Due to supply chain issues and receiving all product via barge many times only once a week, a larger warehouse is needed. This project proposes to excavate 20663 cubic yards of existing material and place 4703 cubic yards of imported fill into 1.247 acres of Palustrine Emergent wetlands to install a driveway from Haugen Drive, additional parking, and a building pad to expand the existing development of the existing grocery store. The existing grocery store has exceeded its current capacity to adequately serve the community. The building pad would be used to expand the storage and warehouse capacity of the current building. The proposed development is split into four (4) separate sections. All work would be performed in accordance with the enclosed plan (sheets 1-7), dated April 2022. The project site is located at Latitude 56.8100º N., Longitude 132.9406º W., in Petersburg, Alaska. Please contact Emily Vullo at (907) 753-2704, toll free from within Alaska at (800) 478-2712, by fax at (907) 753-5567, or by email at Emily.N.Vullo@usace.army.mil if further information is desired concerning this notice.

    Expiration date: 6/2/2022

    Brett Nelson, Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities, states the purpose is to improve safety and bring this section of the Richardson Highway up to current design standards. The project is needed because the Richardson Highway throughout this corridor is substandard. This narrow section of roadway was last upgraded in 1953 and reflects the design standards of the time. The existing paved surface has two 12-foot travel lanes with many areas without a gravel shoulder. The pavement is in need of replacement and areas of the road are experiencing embankment and foundation settlement. The road embankment is steep and its alignment has numerous sharp horizontal and vertical curves that limit sight distance and exceed current design standards. Drainage problems exist in several areas due to undersized or failing culverts. DOT&PF proposes to reconstruct the Richardson Highway between mileposts 167 and 173. The scope of work includes reconstructing the road with 12-foot lanes and 6-foot-wide paved shoulders, reduce existing steep vertical grades and flatten horizontal and vertical curves, grading ditches to drain and replacing failing or undersized culverts, improve turnouts, replace roadway signs, realign the highway around Meiers Lake (MP 170), and build a temporary access road to access a retired material site where unusable material will be placed to reclaim the site. The project site is located between Latitude 62.7789114° N., Longitude 145.4682574° W.; and Latitude 62.8566343° N., Longitude 145.4738913° W.; Milepost 167 to 173 Richardson Highway, near Paxson Lake, Alaska. Please contact John Sargent at (907) 347-1803, toll free from within Alaska at (800) 478-2712, by fax at (907) 753-5567, or by email at John.C.Sargent@usace.army.mil if further information is desired concerning this notice.

    The Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities (ADOT&PF) states the purpose is to improve maintenance and public safety of the Old Edgerton Highway by widening the road, clearing vegetation for sight distance and improving drainage and the driving surface. The proposed upgrades would widen the road to 24-feet with two 12-foot lanes, improve and re-establish ditches, replace culverts where needed, and clear vegetation 30 feet from edge of new roadway width. Activities would occur in a phased manner for at least 5 years. The project site is the Old Edgerton Highway, which extends from Willow Creek to Kenny Lake, Alaska and is located within USGS Quad Maps Valdez C-3, D-3, and D-4; the project mid-point is Latitude 61.7842º N., Longitude 145.0492º W. Please contact Greg Mazer at (907) 347-9059, toll free from within Alaska at (800) 478-2712, by fax at (907) 753-5567, or by email at Gregory.j.mazer@usace.army.mil if further information is desired concerning this notice.

    Nathan Duval, City of Valdez; email: nduval@valdezak.gov, telephone (907) 835-4313, states purpose is to replace the aging Valdez Small Boat Harbor infrastructure to continue the current level of public service, public access, and vessel mooring. To reconstruct the Valdez Small Boat Harbor, including removing the A-G, H-K and Tour Dock floats, steel piles, and utilities. Steel piles would be reinstalled if in good conditions or replaced with new ones. Three gangways would be removed and replaced with salvaged ones or new ones. Dredging would occur at the Tour Dock south access gangway and at the travel (boat) lift gangway and a rock revetment wall would be constructed to stabilize dredged area at the south access gangway. Total dredging area would be 0.25-acre (1,550 cubic yards) and fill area (revetment wall) would be 0.02-acre (125 cubic yards of riprap). Project construction would begin Fall 2022 and is anticipated to have a duration of approximately 5-7 months. The project site is located within Section 32, T. 8 S., R. 6 W., Copper River Meridian; USGS Quad Map Valdez A-7; Latitude 61.1264º N., Longitude 146.3445º W.; City of Valdez Small Boat Harbor, at the end of Chitina Avenue, in Valdez, Alaska.
