Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities' (ADOT&PF) stated purpose was to repair a breach in the embankment of Lost Creek and return creek flow to the main channel that crosses Nebesna Road at an existing low water crossing. The project site is located within Section 33, T. 9 N., R. 12 E., Copper River Meridian; USGS Quad Map Nabesna C-5; Latitude 62.517331º N., Longitude 143.174883º W.; near Nabesna, Alaska. WORK: Lost Creek breached one of its banks and proceeded to flow partially through a historic channel. This flow regime led to erosion along Nabesna Road and risking a historic native village and cemetery site. On July 1 and 2, the ADOT&PF discharged 5550 cubic yards of fill along 1120 linear feet of embankment of Lost Creek. The fill was to reinforce the Nabessna Road and build up the embankment to contain the flow of Lost Creek into its main channel. All work was performed in accordance with the enclosed plan (sheets 1-3), dated July 14, 2016.
