POA-2019-00231, Turnagain Arm

Published June 6, 2019
Expiration date: 7/6/2019

U.S. Forest Service, Glacier Ranger District, Chugach National Forest 145 Forest Station Road, Girdwood, AK, 99587, states that the purpose of this project is to provide safe multimodal access along the Seward Highway right-of-way between Ingram Creek and the hooligan fishing parking area proposed by Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities' (DOT&PF) north of the Twenty-mile River. There is a need for safe, multimodal access through the project area, due to its popularity for a variety of recreation activities. Access to these activities is currently disconnected, limited, and inefficient. The work being proposed involves constructing the Portage Curve Multimodal Connector Main Trail Project. This work would result in discharges of fill material into a total of 11.27 acres of wetlands, and other waters, that abut and/or are adjacent to the Turnagain Arm of the Cook Inlet.  This total includes approximately 0.03-acre of Federally Navigable Waters subject to Section 10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1899.  Table 1 provides a summary of direct impacts to wetlands/waters by wetland type. The project site is located within Section 5, T. 8N., R. 3E., Seward Meridian; Latitude 60.817º N., Longitude 148.967º W.; within the Municipality of Anchorage and the Kenai Peninsula Borough; near Portage, Alaska.
