    Brett Nelson (Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities) stated the purpose is to provide improved transportation efficiency and reduce the cost of shipping freight via marine cargo barges to the remote communities of the NAB. The project would construct a road from Kotzebue, Alaska to the Kotzebue Sound near Cape Blossom, an all-season transportation facility and freight staging area, and provide access to a deeper barge landing site. The existing deep draft marine freight vessels serving Kotzebue currently set anchor in 300 feet of water approximately 15 miles from shore, and freight is then lightered by smaller vessels. The proposed project would provide access to a deep water barge landing with no dynamic shoaling. The project site is located near Kotzebue, Alaska, North Arctic Borough (NAB), starting at approximately Latitude 66.8580º N., Longitude 162.6180º W, and ending at approximately Latitude 66.7299º N., Longitude 162.4314º W, Kotzebue Sound, near Cape Blossom.
