Mr. Sean McKnight, Kawerak, Inc. – Transportation Director, PO Box 948, Nome, Alaska 99762, (907) 443-4395, states that the purpose is to widen the roads and ensure roads are platted within the established right-of-ways (ROW). The project will also raise the roadway embankments to provide flood protection for the school, old water tank, city office, washateria, general store, and fuel tank farm, which are frequently threatened by flooding from strong fall storm surges and wind driven tides. Additionally, the project will improve access to and function of the community boat launch and barge landing site. The work being proposed includes the placement of up to 6,840 cubic yards cubic yards of material into 1.88 acres of waters of the United States (U.S.), including wetlands (WOTUS), for the rehabilitation of twelve existing roads and the construction of a boat ramp. The roads improvements would place 6,620 cubic yards within 1.83 acres of wetlands for portions of the roads. The construction of the 175 foot long by 28 foot wide boat ramp would place 200 cubic yards of pre-cast concrete planks, treated wooden sills, geotextile fabric, ditch lining rock, and riprap material into 0.05 acre area of waters of the U.S., below the mean high water (MHW) mark (this portion of the ramp, below the MHW, is 83 feet long by 28 feet wide). The project site is located within Sections 2, 10, 11, & 15, T. 11 S., R. 22 W., and Section 35, T. 10 S., R. 22 W., Kateel Meridian; USGS Quad Map Solomon C-3; Centroid point at Latitude 64.5436º N., Longitude 163.0273º W.; in Golovin, Alaska.
