Port of Anchorage project need $300M to complete

Aug 19, 2014 -- 10:30am
- ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Anchorage Mayor Dan Sullivan estimates the city needs about $300 million in additional funding to complete the Port of Anchorage construction project. The Alaska Dispatch News reports Sullivan spoke about the troubled project Monday after a week of meetings with shippers, port administrators and employees of CH2M Hill, the company managing the project. The city has spent more than $300 million over the past decade on a rail line, roads, utilities, drainage systems, acreage and a new dock. Construction stalled in 2009, after initial cost estimates soared from $211 million to $1 billion. Sullivan says the city expects to have a new plan by November and construction could resume in 2015.

Public comment period opens for Denali bridges

Aug 19, 2014 -- 9:45am
- ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - National Park Service officials say the agency is considering whether to replace two pedestrian bridges at Alaska's Denali National Park and Preserve. The agency is taking public comments through Sept. 17 for an environmental assessment for the possible project, which would take place next summer at Hotel Creek. Officials say the Healy Overlook and Taiga Trail bridges were built near the water surface and usually capture water flow on top of winter ice. Officials say this creates ice dams on the bridges that usually don't melt until mid-June, resulting in unsafe conditions. According to officials, a new bridge would serve both trails.

Man accused of setting off 'seal bombs' in tunnel

Aug 18, 2014 -- 10:30am
- JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - A Ketchikan man has pleaded not guilty to allegations he detonated bombs used for scaring seals from fishing nets inside a tunnel in that southeast community last month. Joseph Duane Brown was indicted on a felony charge of receipt and possession of explosive materials by a prohibited person. The 39-year-old is a convicted felon, prohibited from possessing explosive materials. The Juneau Empire reports an October trial was scheduled. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jack Schmidt said no one was injured in the July 4 incident, though a taxi was driving through a tunnel at the time the bombs went off. He said there also was no damage to the tunnel. Schmidt said "seal bombs" are legal to own with the proper license and are roughly the size of a firecracker.
