DELONG MOUNTAINS TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM ADDITIONAL USE STUDY

A multidisciplinary assessment and investigation of potential additional uses for the DeLong Mountains Transportation System (DMTS), located in Northwest Alaska, is presented in this paper. The DMTS consists of a 52 mi, all-weather gravel road and a port on the Chukchi Sea shoreline, about 16 mi from the village of Kivalina. The report on which the paper is based was prepared for the Alaska Industrial Development and Export Authority (AIDEA) by CH2M HILL and its subconsultants, Sandwell, Alaska Planning Services, and Kevin Waring Associates. The study includes commodity market research, facility conceptual engineering and cost estimating, public participation and information gathering, institutional evaluations of appropriate operating and financial arrangements, and financial feasibility analysis.
