Mr. John Barnett (Alaska Department of Transportation & Public Facilities) stated the purpose is to improve surface transportation between Revillagigedo Island and Gravina Island.
The project site is located within Sections 16, 21, and 22, T. 75 S., R. 90 E., Copper River Meridian; USGS Quad Map Ketchikan B-6; Latitude 55.3607º N., Longitude 131.7390º W.; near Ketchikan, Alaska.
PROPOSED WORK: This authorization would permit the Seley Road component of the Gravina Access Project. The other authorizations are being reviewed under separate actions and consist of upgrades to the Revillagigedo Island Ferry Berth (POA-2017-466), Gravina Island Ferry Berth (POA-2017-467), Gravina Island Layup Dock replacement (POA-2017-467), and Gravina Island Heavy Freight Mooring Facility (POA-2017-468). Reconstruction of Seley Road would begin at Lewis Reef Road to approximately the north end of the Airport Reserve and widen the road to 36 feet. Additionally, road construction would consist of new abutments for the Airport Creek Bridge and the placement of fish passage culverts in all fish bearing streams. Up to 21,770 cubic yards of material would be discharged into 6.1 acres of wetlands for the road construction and 0.2-acre of stream impacts below the Ordinary High Water Mark (OHW) to construct a bridge and three culverts to accommodate fish passage. Temporary impacts would occur during the construction phase at the Airport Creek Bridge and would consist of up to 4,667 cubic yards of material discharged into 0.10-acre. All work would be performed in accordance with the enclosed plan (sheets 17-28), dated September 26, 2017.
