The Ambler Road project is currently in a phase of taking comments on the potential impacts the road poses to the TCC region and Alaska. The lead federal agency, Bureau of Land Management, will convene village meetings in Allakaket, Alatna and Evansville/Bettles during November, but the agency will accept comments on the project until January 31, 2018.
This is a crucial phase of the project to make your voice known. You can submit comments: 1) by mail to Ambler Road Scoping Comments, 222 West 7th Ave., Stop #13, Anchorage, AK 99513, 2) by phone to Craig McCaa at 474-2231, or 3) by email on the BLM website www.blm.gov.AmblerRoadEIS. The BLM will prepare an environmental impact statement on the road and the scoping period is the most important time to submit your comments to the project research team. To express your concerns about the project, contact Tim LamArr at the Bureau of Land Management (907) 474-2356.
