Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities (ADOT&PF), Brett Nelson’s stated purpose is to upgrade the runway, taxiway, apron and safety areas to meet current Federal Aviation Administration safety guidelines for the aircraft using the airport. Additional improvements needed at the airport to enhance safety and accessibility include expansion of the apron operational surface and aviation support area, and repair and realignment of the existing airport access road. The project site is located at the St. Michael Airport, which is approximately two miles west of the community of St. Michael, Alaska, at Latitude 63.487º N., Longitude 162.114º W. The proposed work would expand the St. Michael Airport by placing approximately 140,000 cubic yards of fill material into approximately 10.98 acres of tundra palustrine wetlands. The proposed project would use fill material from the Halfway Mountain material site, which is approximately three miles to the Northwest of the airport. The proposed project would be performed in accordance with the enclosed plan (sheets 1-8), dated April 20, 2016.
