    Expiration date: 6/5/2019

    PURPOSE: The applicant, Mr. Jon Thies' stated purpose is to expand an already existing commercial gravel material source. LOCATION: The project site is located within Section 20, T. 1 S., R. 1 W., Fairbanks Meridian; USGS Quad Map Fairbanks D-2; Latitude 64.8160º N., Longitude 147.8100º W.; Fairbanks North Star Borough; Block20, Lots 23, 24, 25, and 26; located at 3510 Van Horn Road, in Fairbanks, Alaska. PROPOSED WORK: The applicant’s proposed work is to expand 3.5 acres of an already existing commercial gravel pit located on Tax Lot 26. Lots 23, 24, 25, and 26 are currently owned by the applicant. The existing 2.5 acre material site located on Lot 26 will be expanded to incorporate land area on Lots 23, Lot 24, and Lot 25. The anticipated wetland impact is anticipated to consist of approximately 3.3 acres of Palustrine Scrub-Shrub Broad-Leaved Deciduous/Broad-Leaved Evergreen Seasonally Saturated wetlands (PSS1/3B). The entirety of the lots outside the uplands, located on Lot 26, consist entirely of wetlands. The proposed work will consists of removing and stockpiling approximately 10,650 cubic yards (CY) overburden for use as stockpiling and topsoil, and the extraction of approximately 122,450 CY of sand and gravel to an already existing upland area. The approximately 3.3 acre expansion will be phased over the course of three years. All work would be performed in accordance with the enclosed plan sheets (1-6), dated May 03, 2019. All comments should reach this office no later than the expiration date of this Public Notice to become part of the record and be considered in the decision. Please contact Laurel A.

  • POA-2019-00266

    Expiration date: 6/5/2019

    The Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities (ADOT&PF), states that the purpose of the project is to allow for multiple shuttle ferries. The airport ferry system operated by the Ketchikan Gateway Borough is the only public access link to Gravina Island and Ketchikan International Airport. The existing ferry berth and terminals on Revilla and Gravina Islands are nearing the end of their useful life and are periodically out-of-service for repairs and maintenance. As the airport ferry terminal is a vital element to maintaining access to the airport, a new facility constructed to current standards would improve reliability of that transportation system. Work being proposed includes the discharge of fill material into Tongass Narrows and install structures during the construction of a new ferry berth from 0.50-acre of open water to construct a 85-foot x 250-foot steel float with pile supported restraint structures; discharge of 1,600-cubic yards of fill material into 0.25-acre for retaining wall construction with sheet piles; a pile supported approach trestle at the shore side of the ferry terminal; a steel transfer bridge with vehicular traffic lane and separated pedestrian walkway; a steel bridge support float and steel apron; installation of pile-supported dolphin structures with fixed hanging fenders; pile-supported dolphin structures with floating fenders for all-tide mooring; and placement of riprap in front of the retaining wall bulkhead. The project site is located within Section 22, T. 75 S., R. 90 E., Copper River Meridian; USGS Quad Map Ketchikan B-6; Latitude 55.35693º N., Longitude -131.70743º W.; in Ketchikan, Alaska. Please contact Ms. Arianne Logwood at (907) 753-5556, toll free from within Alaska at (800) 478-2712, by fax at (907) 753-5567, or by email at Arianne.n.logwood@usace.army.mil if further information is desired concerning this notice.
