Akutan Floating Dock Project

The Akutan harbor is an economic asset to the community and the Borough. The Borough believes it’s necessary to complete the float system in its entirety so the harbor can function as intended, meet the needs of the community and realize its full potential as a key harbor for the fishing industry and the North Pacific fishing fleets. The Borough Assembly recently approved a contract with Moffatt & Nichol to help prepare a 2021 MARAD Port Infrastructure Development Grant Application for the Akutan and Sand Point Harbors Floating Docks Project. The Assembly also approved for Moffatt & Nichol to help prepare a 2021 Rebuilding American Infrastructure with Sustainability and Equity (RAISE) grant for the Akutan Harbor Floating Dock Project. The RAISE grant was submitted to the United States Department of Transportation on July 12, 2021. The Akutan Harbor Float System Project consists of installing a new timber main float (Float B) with a pile-supported access trestle and aluminum gangway; and installing a new timber finger floats on the existing Float A, which will cost approximately $15.1 million.
