Sand Point Floating Dock Project
In April 2021, the Borough Assembly approved a contract with Moffatt & Nichol to help prepare a 2021 MARAD Port Infrastructure Development (PIDP) Grant Application for the Sand Point and Akutan Harbors Floating Docks Project. The Sand Point Harbor project consists of installing new prefabricated treated timber floating docks within the existing harbor, in addition to in-water and upland improvements. The Sand Point and Akutan Harbor Float Design projects are a focal point of investment already made by the Borough, Army Corps of Engineers, the Cities of Sand Point and Akutan and for business opportunities planned in the future. The U.S. Maritime Administration has suggested bundling this $8.25 million project with the Akutan Harbor project. The Borough submitted the PIDP Grant and a State of Alaska Municipal Harbor Grant application for this project in 2021.
