Permit Application Public Notices

Public involvement is a key element of the Corps’ permit review process. During an application review, the USACE, Regulatory Division considers the views of other federal, state and local agencies, Native American tribes, interest groups, and the general public. The results of this careful public interest review are fair and equitable decisions that allow reasonable use of private property, infrastructure development, and growth of the economy, while offsetting the authorized impacts to the waters of the United States. This is accomplished through the posting of a Public Notice on the USACE, Regulatory Division's website and soliciting comments.

The USACE, Regulatory Division publishes monthly a list of individual permits issued, denied, or pending during the previous month. The list will identify each action by public notice number, name of applicant, and brief description of activity involved. It will also note the relevant environmental documents and the Statements of Findings (SOF) or Records of Decision (ROD) that are available upon written request through the FOIA process and, where applicable, upon the payment of administrative fees.

Jill Baxter-McIntosh, with Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities (ADOT&PF), states the project purpose is to improve safety on this stretch of highway.  Proposed work would modify the original permit to increase the wetland acres impacted by placement of fill additional disposal sites.  This is a precautionary contingency proposal as the soil, which is rich in permafrost and fine particles, are wet and slumping and the original volume of excavated materials cannot be piled as originally planned. Work being purposed includes three newly proposed spoil disposal areas are in Palustrine Scrub Shrub wetlands.  A maximum of 25.9 acres of impacts are anticipated if all the proposed disposal areas are needed for the project.  This will be the result of placing approximately 70,500 cubic yards of unusable material in stabilization berms along the road embankment.  Estimations of acreage and fill quantities were made assuming a 3:1 catch slope and 10-ft offset from the edge of right-of-way.  All work would be performed in accordance with the enclosed plan (sheets 1–6), dated December 01, 2020. The project site is on the Richardson Highway between Mile Posts (MP) 159 and 167, located within: USGS Quad Gulkana C–3, T 10 N., R 01 W., Sections 5 & 6, T 11 N., R 01 W., Sections 6, 8, 16, 17, 21, 28, 29, and 32 and USGS Quad Gulkana D–3, T 12 N., R 01 W., Section 32.
