Seward Adds Further Harbor Expansion Projects

We reported earlier in the week that the Alaska Railroad Corporation is considering expanding freight services in Seward, but Director of Community Development Ron Long said that’s not the only project on the table…


Long: “The other thing going on right now is we are still pursuing our own harbor expansion plan for industrial harbor on the east side of the bay to  accommodate the relocation of one of the large community development quota fleets from Seattle back to Alaska, and we’ve received $10 million in the statewide transportation bond package from last year for that project and are hopefully going to see the legislative session here end with the $8 million that we’re in that budget for, capital budget for, remain through the end of the session. So that’s a pretty exciting project, that’ll get the breakwater pretty well completed to enclose the basin and make it more usable.”
