Angoon Airport Project SFAPT-00086

Angoon Logo

Welcome to the website for the Angoon Airport Design.

This Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities (DOT&PF) project will design and construct a new airport in Angoon.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) completed an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for a land-based airport for the community of Angoon. A Record of Decision was signed in October of 2016. The selected alternative for the airport is 12a. For more information on the FAA EIS, visit the documents page.

September 16-20, 2019

Additional geotechnical investigations at the future airport site will happen September 16 to 20.  The team will be digging about 15 additional test pits.  Findings will support the design of the proposed fish passage culvert, stream realignment and surcharge embankments.  Some trees will be cleared to allow the team to access the new test pit sites.  Some spurs will be constructed off the main existing pioneer road.  

Thanks for your patience as we continue to develop the Angoon Airport design.    If you have any questions, please contact David Pyeatt, DOT&PF Project Manager ( or (907) 465-4490).

Draft WR Public Comment Period Now Closed

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities (DOT&PF) published a revised Draft Written Re-evaluation (DWR) concerning the Record of Decision (ROD) and Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for the Proposed Airport, Angoon, Alaska, which was available for public review and comment from April 10 through May 10 2019. The DWR includes minor informational project updates and an illustration of the potential land acquisition area for both airport construction and establishing required airspace. The DWR can be found on the documents Page.

A Public Open House was held in Angoon on June 1, 2018.

The Scoping Report documents research, analysis and outreach done to date, and recommends Alternative 12A-Echo be moved forward for detailed design

The Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities (DOT&PF), in cooperation with the FAA, is moving the project forward through design and construction.

The design project will:

  • Determine the airport layout and design elements, such as runway orientation, aircraft parking location, and airport access
  • Acquire permits
  • Acquire Right-of-Way (ROW)
  • Prepare bid documents for construction contractors

The new airport is anticipated to cost in the range of $30-$40 million and will be paid for by FAA funds. Cost estimates will continue to be revised as the design progresses.

DOT&PF has hired a team of consultants to develop the airport design and create the engineering documents needed.  This team includes PDC Engineers and HDR Alaska.
