    Expiration date: 6/24/2021

    Mr. Brett Nelson, with Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities (ADOT&PF), states the projects purpose is to maintain safe access from the City of Shageluk to the nearby State-owned airport. Work being proposed, consists of reconstructing 2.7 miles of the existing airport access road, starting at the north bank of Hamilton Slough (aka Shageluk Slough) and ending at the airport property. The project will include minor road realignment; relocation of an overhead and underground electric power transmission line; and resurfacing of the roadway with approximately 9-inches of crushed surface course. The surfacing material would be mined from Doyon's 4.5 Mile Quarry, which would be enlarged. The ADOT&PF proposes accessing the 4.5 Mile Quarry via a winter ice road over the Innoko River or via summer barging. Access to the river would be from Innoko Street, a platted public road owned by the City of Shageluk, located approximately 120 feet upstream from the confluence with Hamilton Slough. The material would be temporarily stockpiled on a staging area located in an upland site. The proposed work will result in the placement of approximately 5,080 cubic yards of clean gravel fill into a total of 9.3 acres of wetlands. All work would be performed in accordance with the enclosed plan (sheets 1-13). The project is located within Sections 15, 22, 26, 27; T31N, R55W Seward Meridian; USGS Quad Map; Latitude 62.66124 Nº N., Longitude 159.54055º W., near the City of Shageluk, Alaska.
