Expiration date: 11/25/2013
The Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities' stated purpose is to increase the longevity of the facility and to improve the efficiency and safety for the transfer of passengers and vehicles by the Alaska Marine Highway System M/V Tustumena. The existing timber dock is approximately 50 years old and is nearing the end of its intended service life. The existing 12,150 square foot timber dock would be replaced completely, and expanded to 19,000 square feet. The new dock would consist of 88, 24-inch diameter steel piles, a concrete deck, 10 new 18-inch diameter fender pin piles, and the fuel and water systems would be upgraded. Existing creosote treated timber piles would be removed. An impact or vibratory hammer would be used to install piles into pre-drilled holes in bedrock. In addition, up to 250 cubic yards of fill material would be placed within up to 0.1-acre below the High Tide Line of Near Island Channel in order to protect the shoreline from further erosion.
