Outreach Meeting Tuesday, April 17, 2018 for RFP No. 25-18-1-041, Kivalina Evacuation & School Site Access Road CMGC

The Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities (DOT&PF), in cooperation with the Alaska Division of the Federal Highway Administration, is seeking a contractor to assist in design development and subsequent construction of the Kivalina Evacuation & School Site Access Road.  This project will use the Construction Manager General Contractor (CMGC) project delivery method.

DOT&PF proposes to construct a combined causeway and bridge facility across Kivalina Lagoon and associated all-season gravel access road from the lagoon eastern shoreline eastward to a community-selected evacuation site near Kisimigiuqtuq Hill (K-Hill). The proposed project would provide Kivalina residents a safe and reliable evacuation route in the event of a catastrophic storm or ocean surge, allowing evacuees to temporarily mobilize to safe refuge at an assembly site on K-Hill. The proposed project action includes:

  • Establishment of a safe, reliable, all-season Kivalina Lagoon crossing consisting of earthen embankment, armor stone, bridge, and culverts. 
  • Construction of an all-season access road connecting the Kivalina Lagoon crossing to the K-Hill evacuation site. 
  • Development of up to four local material sources. 

DOT&PF invites contractors to a meeting at the AGC Fairbanks Office Training Room, 3750 Bonita St., on Tuesday, April 17, 2018 from 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm, to learn more about the contractor selection process, CMGC, and the Kivalina Evacuation & School Site Access Road Project.
