AVCP and CH2MHill won an Engineering Excellence Honor award from the Alaska Engineering Societies at the 2016 Engineer’s week held in Anchorage, Alaska. The Honor Award was awarded for the Yukon to Kuskokwim Freight and Energy Corridor Study.

The plan originated on behalf of a request from the tribe of Kalskag. AVCP is developing the design of a freight energy corridor between the Yukon River and Kuskokwim Rivers. The goal is to improve commerce; reduce fuel and freight costs; and position the region for an Alaska natural gas economy. AVCP has completed 1/3 of the design of the Yukon Kuskokwim Freight Energy Corridor with funds from the State of Alaska, and Denali Commission. We are pursuing funding to complete the design and study phase of this project.

Yukon-Kuskokwim Corridor Plan Executive Summary


Yukon-Kuskokwim Corridor Plan Executive Summary Based on studies, Corridor C was selected as most practical for construction and operations based on engineering standards, best practices and judgement, environmental sensitivity, consideration of land ownership, and key subsistence species and use factors. Corridor C begins just upriver from Kalskag on the Kuskokwim River, traverses the eastern foothills or the Portage Mountains with a northern terminus on Paimut Slough, 8 miles upstream from the Yukon River. Paimut Slough is the lower portion of the Innoko River.selected as most practical for construction and operations based on engineering standards, best practices and judgement, environmental sensitivity, consideration of land ownership, and key subsistence species and use factors.
