Matanuska-Susitna Borough's stated purpose is to improve the road width and surface to allow future cyclic load of heavy equipment transporting materials to and from Port MacKenzie. The widening of the road and installing of guardrails will also make the road safer. The project site is located within Sections 23 and 26, T. 14 N., R. 4 W., Seward Meridian; USGS Quad Map Anchorage B-8; Latitude 61.2801º N., Longitude 149.9319º W.; from Anchorage, Alaska, take the Glenn Highway to Wasilla and head south on Knik-Goose Bay Road for 17.2 miles. Take a right onto Port MacKenzie Road and continue for 7.5 miles. At the "T", take a left and continue on Point MacKenzie Road for 14-miles. Lu Young Lane is located on the right, just before the port. The proposed project would widen the Lu Young Lane from 24-feet wide to 34-feet wide along its 1.17-mile length. The proposed activity would require placement of up to 1,740 cubic yards of fill material into approximately 0.67-acre of wetlands. Six new culverts and new guardrails would be replaced/installed along the road. All work would be performed in accordance with the enclosed plan (sheets 1-17), dated November 6, 2015.
