PORTS AND VESSEL STUDY: EXTENSION OF THE MARINE HIGHWAY SYSTEM

The first four volumes carry the Port and Vessel Study from Cook Inlet to Kodiak Island, and thence across the Alaska Peninsula, through a researched and recommended route, to the mouth of the Kvichak River at Bristol Bay. In addition to routes, types of vessels are recommended that are best suited for the purpose. Volumes V & VI explore the conditions and needs of the Bristol Bay coastal communities, both sides of the Alaska Peninsula, and the Aleutian Islands westward to Unalaska which are considered the limit of economically feasibile involvement. Following a presentation and discussion of existing conditions and deficiencies of transportation within the study area, the report concludes with recommendations as to the time and manner of their solution. /Author/
