    Isadora Fanning (Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities (ADOT & PF)) stated the purpose is to improve safety and efficiency of the Kiana Airport by bringing the airport to Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) standards for aircraft delivering essential goods and services to the community. The project is located at the Bob Baker Memorial Airport, Latitude 66.9758333, Longitude – 160.4363888, Kateel River Meridian, T18N/19N, R8W/8W, S 4,5,6,8,9 / 31,32 near the community of Kiana, Northwest Arctic Borough, Alaska. The proposal involves various airport improvements, including skewing and lengthening the existing runway and taxiway, expanding the existing apron, resurfacing operational surfaces, and replacing light and navigational aids (NAVAIDs). Gravel will be sourced from a new, offsite gravel pit located approximately 2.8 miles to the northwest of Kiana, and accessed via a proposed permanent gravel road. The proposed work will result in the filling of 113.99 acres of wetlands, of which 92.82 acres of wetlands will be filled permanently and 21.17 acres will be filled temporarily. Total volume of fill is 304,441 cubic yards. Please contact Mr. Steve Moore by email at stephen.a.moore2@usace.army.mil, by phone at (907) 753-5713, toll free from within Alaska at (800) 478-2712, or by fax at (907) 753-5567 if you have questions or need further information concerning this public notice.

    Charlie Carpenter (Arctic Slope Telephone Association Cooperative, Inc. (ASTAC)) stated the purpose is to “fill approximately 1.5 acres of wetlands for the construction of a gravel pad. Initially, the gravel pad would be used for equipment and material storage. Ultimately, the pad would be used as the operations center for ASTAC’s Barrow business unit, and include a warehouse (3,600 square foot), crew living quarters (5,000 square foot), and administrative offices and equipment building (3,500 square foot).” The project site is located at Latitude 71.27472º N., Longitude 156.80741º W.; from the Wiley Post-Will Rogers Memorial Airport head west until you reach Apayauk Street, then turn left and follow the road south around the end of the runway for approximately 0.5 miles to Nunavaaq Road and turn right. Continue southwest for approximately 0.5 mile and the project site is on the south side of the road in Barrow, Alaska. The applicant proposes to discharge 7,025 cubic yards of fill into 1.5 acres of palustrine wetlands to construct a gravel pad for an operations center. All work would be performed in accordance with the enclosed plan (sheets 1-3), dated July 11, 2017.

    Expiration date: 8/28/2017

    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. Please contact Jeremy Grauf at (907) 753-2798, toll free from within Alaska at (800) 478-2712, by fax at (907) 753-5567, or by email at Jeremy.Grauf@usace.army.mil if further information is desired concerning this notice.
