  • POA-1993-425-M8, St. Herman Bay

    Expiration date: 7/25/2014

    Pacific Pile and Marine, L.P's stated purpose is to provide safe and efficient transport of material from the City of Kodiak’s Near Island Quarry. Pacific Pile and Marine, L.P proposes to construct a new steel barge ramp (80 feet in length by 14 feet in width) in St. Herman Bay. The barge ramp would be secured into the existing concrete curb at the Near Island shoreline. A total of twelve 24-inch diameter steel piles would be installed below Mean High Water (approximate elevation +7.9 feet above the 0.0 foot contour); two individual piles would support the barge ramp, while two 3-pile breasting dolphins and two 2-pile breasting dolphins would facilitate berthing of barge vessels loading and unloading quarry material. Post-construction, the height of the piles would extend 8 feet above Mean High Water. Proposed work would be completed from a crane barge (160 feet in length by 50 feet in width); piles would be driven into the substrate via vibratory hammer. Each pile would require 2 hours of vibratory pile driving, and all 12 piles would be installed consecutively; no more than 24 hours to complete all vibratory pile driving. The applicant has proposed to utilize an impact hammer to clear isolated obstructions (only if encountered). In this unanticipated scenario, impact pile driving would last no more than 6 hours. The applicant anticipates starting work in August, 2014; construction is expected to last 7 days. There is no filling, blasting, or dredging proposed by this permit application. All work would be performed in accordance with the enclosed plan (sheets 1-3), dated June 19, 2014. Please contact Michael Setering at (907) 283-3518, by fax at (907) 283-3981, or by email at if further information is desired concerning this notice.

    Matanuska-Susitna Borough's stated purpose is to provide a new connection between the Parks Highway and Nelson Road that would accommodate recent and projected development in the area south of Parks Highway and west of Glenn Highway. The proposed project would construct a 1.1 mile extension of Trunk Road from the south side of the Parks Highway to Nelson Road, and would rebuild Nelson Road west to the Wasilla Creek Bridge, which would be replaced with a wider bridge.

The total length of the project would be 1.5 miles and would include a new bridge over the Alaska Railroad (AKRR). The new Trunk Road would include two 12-foot lanes with shoulders between five and eight feet wide and 4:1 to 6:1 horizontal to vertical side slopes. A 10-foot asphalt pathway would be located on the west side of the road and would be separated from the road by five feet. The bridge over the AKRR would be a new bridge 170 feet long and 54 feet wide and made of precast prestressed concrete segments with a cast in place concrete deck roadway surface. The existing bridge over Wasilla Creek is 40 feet long and 26 feet wide, and would be replaced with a bridge 110 feet long and 54 feet wide to accommodate a 100-year flood.
