The Port of Anchorage provides critical shipment support of fuel and goods to Alaska citizens, especially those living in Alaska's most remote areas. The existing port has exceeded its original design and economic life due to severe corrosion and cargo transport practices changes. The Port of Alaska Modernization Program (PAMP) will provide four new terminals for shipping companies.
In mid-November 2020, the Port of Anchorage successfully finished its first season of in-water Petroleum and Cement Terminal construction (PCT). The workers were able to complete the base structure for the PCT access trestle and platform. They removed the temporary construction trestle that was used to build the PCT base structure. The work is shut down for winter.
In 2018 and 2019, PCT-related shore preparation work and transitional dredging were performed. Work is set to resume this month. The overall PCT project is expected to open in late 2021 after some delay due to COVID and beluga whale sightings, a protected endangered species.
