Native Village of Barrow's stated purpose is to provide access to approximately 240 undeveloped residential lots in Barrow, Alaska.  The community of Barrow is experiencing a shortage of housing of all types.  The 2008-2012 American Community Survey 5 year estimate indicates that 13% of households in Barrow are overcrowded, 4% of which are severely overcrowded (US Census 2012).  This project is priority number three in the Native Village of Barrow Long Range Transportation Plan (2010).  Additionally, the August 2014 Comprehensive Plan identifies the need for road expansions to facilitate new residential housing development.  The project proposes to construct 15,860 linear feet of roadway placing 124,978 cubic yards of clean gravel fill into 21.5 acres of wetlands.  Roadways would be approximately 20 feet wide and have 5 foot wide shoulders with 4:1 side slopes tapering to 3:1 at the toe of slope.  A total of 42 corrugated pipe culverts, with a 24 inch diameter, would allow for surface drainage.  Fill would be placed over woven geotextile and 2-inch rigid insulation will be used to provide insulation between the roadway and permafrost.  All work would be performed in accordance with the enclosed plan (sheets 1-6), dated 11/20/2014.  Please contact Janet Post at (907) 753-2831, toll free from within Alaska at (800) 478-2712, by fax at (907) 753-5567, or by email at if further information is desired concerning this notice.
