Port Mac Rail extension EIS released

by KTNA Staff ~ March 30th, 2011

The Surface Transportation Board has released its final Environmental Impact Statement for Port MacKenzie rail spur and is recommending the MacCentral and Houston-South routes for the spur extension.

The Mac Central and Houston south alignment has been described as one with some of the least impacts.   Railroad officials say that along the entire corridor, only one house will need relocating.  Crossings will be built to accommodate dog mushers and ATV trails. Several fish passage culverts will be built along the route to minimize impacts.

Borough Assembly member Cindy Bettine spoke at the recent press conference and said that much support comes from Fairbanks and Healy, since the spur will help get more minerals to the Port.  Railroad officials also say the rail would supply most of the heavy materials for the proposed Susitna Dam.

The Borough and railroad have requested the legislature appropriate $55 million toward construction of the project. The estimated cost of the project overall is $218 million.

Not since the construction of the Parks Highway and the Electrical Intertie has such a large infrastructure project been approved by the Mat Su Borough.

Some road infrastructure has already been built at Port MacKenzie. The railroad expects more construction to occur this summer.

An open house is scheduled in Wasilla on April 7th at Evangelos Restaurant.

(The full EIS is available for your viewing at the KTNA offices.  The book is 3 inches thick and will take some time to read.)

Some estimates state that up to 30 to 77 percent of women will develop fibroids sometime during their childbearing years, although only about one-third of these fibroids are large enough to be detected by aacircnbsphealth care provider during a physical examination.
