Runway, Taxiway for
Nanwalek-Port Graham Airport
R&M is the civil design engineer for a new,
shared Nanwalek and Port Graham airport that
will improve air service for both communities.
The project includes a new 3.5-mile access road
traversing the mountainous terrain that currently acts as a barrier between the two communities. The proposed airport and access road
will link Nanwalek and Port Graham to the airport and to each other. The project kicked off in
January 2018 with the first community meetings taking place in March. Field investigations
will start in summer 2019. Design is scheduled
for completion in early 2022 with construction
beginning summer 2022.
R&M provided engineering design services
to rehabilitate the asphalt pavement surface
of Runway 1/19 at Dillingham Airport. The
$8 million construction project for the 6,400-
foot runway rehab is currently in construction and scheduled for completion during
fall 2018. The general contractor is Quality

Glacier Highway Reconstruction
Near Auke Bay Elementary
The Stantec-designed project will reconstruct Glacier Highway from the Fritz Cove
Road intersection to the intersection of
Seaview Avenue in Auke Bay. Work on the
$13.8 million project will improve sight-lines and reduce conflicting turning patterns
while also improving the roadway’s shoulders and pedestrian crossings near Auke Bay
Elementary School. The project will include
roadway subbase improvement, widening,
curve realignment, and surfacing. Pedestrian
facilities, retaining walls, lighting, drainage,
and guardrail are part of the design. Construction in 2017 included curve realignment, subbase replacement, construction of
multiple retaining walls, a new waterline,
and utility relocations. A second phase, from
the Back Loop Road roundabout to Seaview
Avenue, started this spring. Secon is the project contractor. R
