SAXMAN VILLAGE PORT AND TERMINAL STUDY
The Saxman Village Port and Terminal (SVPT) constructed in 1964, provided rail-barge service to Southeast Alaska. Its operation provides a means of access to U.S. and Canadian transcontinental railroads. Recently, Foss Alaska Line, which carried an estimated 94 percent of the total waterborne commerce passing through the SVPT, terminated its preferential use agreement with the City of Saxman. The objective of this study was to determine the engineering and economic requirements for continuing the operations of or redeveloping the Saxman Village Port and Terminal at Saxman, Alaska. The study has evaluated the movement of waterborne commerce throughout Southeast Alaska, the Ketchikan area, and particularly the SVPT in order to project the potential demands for the continued use of the SVPT as a cargo handling facility.
