Secretary Darcy Tours Alaskan Coastal Projects

Jo-Ellen Darcy, Assistant Secretary of the Army for Civil Works, joined last week the United States Army Corps of Engineers’ Alaska District on multiple site visits in Alaska.

Alaska Coastal Erosion projects were originally authorized in Section 117 of the Omnibus Appropriations Act of 2005.

This project was first identified in the Energy and Water Appropriations Bill for 2006.

The communities of Kivalina, Newtok, Shishmaref, Koyukuk, Barrow, Kaktovik, Point Hope, Bethel and Unalakleet were identified as eligible recipients of funds.

Studies were performed for these communities. About 670 linear feet of rock revetment was constructed under the Section 117 authority. The remaining work under the initial decision document is being completed as a cost-shared project.

The Corps recently completed 450 linear feet of rock revetment. The remaining work includes 350 linear feet of sheet pile revetment to be awarded this fiscal year.

Darcy rounded up her trip with a tour of the Unakaleet Coastal Erosion Project.
