Project Summary

The Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities has sought recommendations from the Alaska University Transportation Center for the interim stabilization of Kwigillingok runway. ADOT&PF is in the early process of developing a long-term stabilization solution which will likely result in a new facility around 2015. For the interim, however, ADOT&PF has turned to AUTC for assistance in stabilizing the runway through the use of geofibers and synthetic fluid, a non-traditional technology that AUTC has been researching for the last three years.
