To construct an open-cell steel bulkhead dock along approximately 1,100 linear feet of the Kuskokwim River shoreline at an average depth of -15 feet Mean Lower Low Water (MLLW). The total length of the docking area would be 1,600 linear feet. Approximately 50,000 cubic yards of sand and gravel fill and 1,600 cubic yards of riprap armor rock would be placed into 2.9 acres below the High Tide Line (HTL). Sand and gravel would be placed behind the face sheets and the riprap at both ends of the bulkhead. There would be one-48 inch diameter culvert installed in the bulkhead for upland drainage. Also, 24-pipe pile dolphins would be placed just upstream of the bulkhead dock, to support smaller barges for upstream cargo transport.
