Project Need: Due to natural changes in the Koyukuk River, the original Huslia boat landing area became extremely unsafe and difficult to access. Problems included extreme erosion that continued to slough material into the river, steep terrain, and limited space for parking personal watercraft. A new boat landing was selected by the community about one-half mile upriver.
Client: Huslia Tribal Council
Completion Date: 2013
Construction Support: Nancy Elrod, P.E. of Elrod Engineering, LLC., remained onsite for the duration of the construction project and provided workforce hiring, training, construction management and administration, record-keeping and reporting. EBSC provided all pre-construction documents, including safety plan, traffic plan, project schedule, erosion control plan, etc.
Cost Effectiveness: The project was completed ahead of schedule and under budget via force account. Remaining funds were used to support additional Huslia transportation needs.
