    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.

    Expiration date: 6/14/2021

    Mr. Robert Cummings, with the City of Unalaska, states the purposed project is to improve safety for vehicles, freight and non-motorized roadway users along Captains Bay Road by addressing roadway safety deficiencies. Work being proposed, to discharge 121,500 cubic yards (CY) of fill (Type A fill, porous backfill and Class I/V riprap) into 8.60 acres below the high tide line (HTL), (4.7’ above the 0.0 foot contour) of Captains Bay, a navigable water of the U.S., for the widening, paving and straightening of horizontal curves along 13,696 linear foot of Captains Bay Road. Of the 8.60 acres of fill below the HTL, 7.02 acres (108,000 CY of fill) would also be below the mean high water mark (MHWM), (3.4’ above the 0.0 foot contour). The typical road section would include two 13-foot-wide paved travel lanes, 2-foot-wide paved shoulders, ocean side rolled curb and gutter and a 6-foot-wide asphalt walkway. The project would also include utility relocations/upgrades/extensions (electrical, communications, sanitary sewer and potable water) and the installation of street lighting. The total area of fill described above includes 0.02 acre below the ordinary high water mark/HTL of an unnamed perennial stream within the Westward Seafoods facility for replacement of an existing undersized culvert with a 96-inch corrugated aluminum pipe to allow adequate fish passage. Additionally, 550 CY of 1.5’ to 4’ diameter rock would be discharged into 5,856 square foot (SF) below the MHWM of Captains Bay for the re-construction of 5,856 SF of rock groins which would be removed or encapsulated by the current proposal. The currently existing groins were constructed as mitigation required by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) to offset impacts to Steller’s eiders through construction of the Carl E. Moses boat harbor.
