The Alaska Department of Public Transportation & Public Facilities (DOT&PF) is proposing to expand the existing Airport Field Maintenance (AFM) Storage Yard located on the south side of Lake Hood Drive and the west side of Helio Place at the Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport (TSAIA). The AFM Storage Yard expansion would be utilized as a storage yard for Airport operations primarily to store supplemental and backup equipment, materials for ongoing operations, and as a temporary laydown area for construction projects and for temporary materials stockpiling. The expansion would require approximately 16 acres of ground disturbance, which includes 7.7 acres wetlands filled, within an area historically dedicated to airport operations. The proposed AFM storage yard expands upon existing property use and function at TSAIA. The proposed project is scheduled to begin construction in 2018.
DOT&PF is planning to post on the online Public Notices website a Notice of Availability for 30 day review the project’s Draft Environmental Assessment document. The proposed project is scheduled to begin construction in 2018.
