Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities' stated purpose for modification of their existing permit is to construct a barge access channel and landing for the Kotzebue Airport and Runway Safety Area Improvements Project, right at the project site, instead of using the existing barge landing at the north end of town. This would reduce by 90% the number of trucks hauling material the 1½ miles through town, estimated at 13,000 loads over the 2-year life of the project. Please contact Mary Leykom at (907) 753-2711, toll free from within Alaska at (800) 478-2712, by fax at (907) 753-5567, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org if further information is desired.
