ANCHORAGE, AK (August 28, 2018) – The Chugach National Forest has issued a preliminary environmental analysis of the proposed Portage Curve Multimodal Connector for public and agency review. The Chugach National Forest is proposing to construct a multimodal recreational path along the Seward Highway between Ingram Creek and an area north of Twentymile River. This accessible infrastructure will facilitate year-round recreation opportunities on the Chugach National Forest in the Portage Curve area. It will include the addition of trailheads and connections to other recreational facilities such as the Alaska Railroad Corporation and the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, and the DOT&PF proposed hooligan fishery parking area north of Twentymile River.

Specific written comments on the proposed project will be accepted for 30 days starting August 27 and ending September 26th.  A copy of the preliminary environmental analysis available at
