Remote Crushing in Alaska

The Dalton Highway project consisted of two State of Alaska, DOT contracts to mobilize equipment, excavate, crush and stockpile gravel at MP86 & MP267 of the Dalton Hwy: MP86 – 75,000 CY D1 and MP 267 – 40,000 CY E1. This project shows Alaska Marine's ability to work with State and Federal Governments to obtain and uphold various permits required to operate within BLM Land. Additionally, it shows Alaska Marine's skill at facilitating the transportation of its own equipment to these remote areas. Each job was completed within the timeframe set forth in the contracts.


Fifteen semi loads of crushing related equipment were moved from Anchor Point, AK to MP267 of the Dalton Highway and other various places along the Dalton Highway and back to Anchor Point upon completion.
Some of the important logistics involved in the planning process were moving the portable roch crushing equipment to the job site before road restrictions were implemented throughout the state, maintaining communications through various means of satellite communication, and arranging availability of adequate living accommodations for crew while working in remote locations.
