Abstract:

The Air Force proposes to construct a new access road and bridge connecting Elmendorf AFB to U.S. Army Fort Richardson. The road and bridge would be located entirely on Fort Richardson property and would become property of the Army upon completion of construction. The purpose of the Proposed Action is to improve transportation between Elmendorf AFB and Fort Richardson. The action is needed to improve fire and emergency response access between the installations, reduce traffic on Davis Highway, improve access to consolidated community services, and provide an alternate access route for Phase II Private Sector Financed PSF housing on Elmendorf AFB. This EA evaluates the Proposed Action, the No Action Alternative, an Alternative Action, and the cumulative impacts of other actions announced for the project area. Under the No Action Alternative, military personnel and dependents would continue to use existing roadways on both installations. Resources considered in the impact analysis were noise land use air quality water resources hazardous materials and wastes biological resources cultural resources geological resources and, safety. With the incorporation of specific design features, best management practices, and compliance with regulatory permits, significant impacts would not be expected to result from the Proposed Action, Alternative Action, or the No Action Alternative.
