Abstract: The Alaska District, Corps of Engineers and the Waterways Experiment Station are investigating navigation problems including tidal currents, sedimentation, and regional transportation requirements within Upper Cook Inlet. Potential solutions being considered include structural improvements, selection of better navigation routes, and evaluation of maintenance plans for existing and proposed navigation facilities. Most of the work is 75% complete. An investigation of documented marine vessel accidents is in progress and is expected to be completed in April 1987. The entire study is scheduled to be completed in August 1987.
