Salmon Creek Revetment

The Kenai Peninsula Borough, on behalf of the Seward/ Bear Creek Flood Service Area, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Alaska District is notifying the public that construction is scheduled to begin on the Salmon Creek 205 Revetment project on or around Tuesday, February 27, 2018.  Site survey work will be completed the week of January 29, 2018.

The Salmon Creek Revetment is an armored flood control project on the right (north) bank of upper Salmon Creek near Seward, Alaska. The project is being designed and constructed under the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Continuing Authorities Program Section 205 – Flood Risk Management authority.

The project will construct a 1,675-foot-long revetment with upgrades to the existing trail and a parking area at the end of Romack Court. Initial construction activities will include mobilizing heavy equipment, and clearing and grubbing a cul-de-sac at the end of Romack Court. Construction crews will be improving the access trail to 12’ wide, and hauling in dimensional armor rock for stockpiling within the project limits.

Trucks and heavy equipment will use the route from Bear Lake Road to Tiehacker Road to Orlander Avenue to Vogle Place to Romack Court from 8:00 am to 2:30 pm and 3:30 pm to 9:00 pm. The route will not be used during school bus hours. Light commercial vehicles are expected to make use of the route beginning February 27, 2018, with heavy commercial use expected to begin tentatively on, or around, March 16, 2018. Construction activities are expected to be completed June 13, 2018.
