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 on Revilla Island. Such activities include the excavation of 3,000-cubic yards of material from a 0.29-acre area, discharge of 400-cubic yards of fill material into 0.11-acre of open water to construct a steel float with pile supported restraint structures; a bulkhead retaining wall constructed 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 removal and replacement of a sewer outfall.  The project site is located within Section 14 & 23, T. 75 S., R. 90 E., Copper River Meridian; USGS Quad Map Ketchikan B-6; Latitude 55.35925º N., Longitude-131.70280º 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.
