    Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities (ADOT&PF) stated purpose is to reconstruct approximately 12 miles of the Elliott Highway, starting at Milepost (MP) 107.7 and ending at MP 120.5. The purpose of the project is to improve safety and maintain access for the traveling public and to reduce roadway maintenance costs. The project would involve realigning up to 5 miles of the highway, raising road embankments, replacing damaged or compromised culverts, and upgrading substandard horizontal and vertical curves. The continued development of the material site situated at MP 94.5 (impact volume ~ 114,800 cubic yards, or 9 acres) is also proposed by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). Material Site MP 134 (impact volume ~ 2,000 cubic yards, or 0.56 acres). would also be utilized in providing material for this proposed project. The existing Elliott Highway within the project limits is a two-lane gravel roadway with substandard curves causing the road to be impassable due to spring run-off or rain events, which are subject to erosion from poor drainage. Natural drainage patterns would be maintained by replacing existing culverts and adding new ones. The total estimated permanent fill impacts to wetlands are 116,800 cubic yards, or, 9.56 acres for the entire project. The total estimated temporary impacts to wetlands are approximately 22.6 acres within waters of the United States.All work would be performed in accordance with the enclosed plan (sheets 1-20) dated May 8, 2014, and (sheets 21-22), dated July 7, 2014. Please contact Patricia Lora at (907) 753-2797; toll free from within Alaska at (800) 478-2712, by fax at (907) 753-5567, or by email at patricia.l.lora@usace.army.mil, if further information is desired concerning this notice.

    Expiration date: 8/7/2014

    Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities' stated purpose is to conduct road improvements to the Dalton Highway. The proposed project includes the discharge of 185,000 cubic yards (cy) of fill material into 35.1 acres of waters of the U.S., including wetlands to conduct road improvements to the Dalton Highway, MP 401-414. An additional 111.7 acres of impacts are associated with the three proposed material sites for a total of 146.8 acres of impacts (See sheet 2 of 36 for the breakdown of impacts). MS 65-9-101-2 is located entirely in wetlands and would include the construction of a 7.2 acre work pad, 0.46 acres of access road, 19.6 acres of overburden storage areas, and a 40 acre mining area. MS 65-9-102-2 is located completely in wetlands, would use an existing work pad/staging area, would fill 0.33 acre of wetlands for an access road, and would use 18 acres for overburden storage, and would have a 23 acre mining area. MS 65-9-026-2 is located below ordinary high water (OHW) in the Sagavanirktok River. There would be a 7.5 acres stockpile area, 0.6 acres of access road and the mining area would be 23 acres in size, mined to a depth of 12’, and would result in 450,000 cy of excavation from the Sagavanirktok River.
