The AGDC announced the selected route to the Nikiski community this evening. The next step for the advancement of the project is to move towards the design phase and present the selected route to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). Jesse Carlstrom Communications Manager with the AGDC: “The AGDC selected the West LNG Alternative for the Kenai Spur Highway reroute, and this selection is based on the West Alternative that was presented to the Nikiski community during a February 12 community meeting. Based on community feedback during that meeting the AGDC made alterations to the alternative and came up with this alternative.” The West LNG Alternative begins along the existing Kenai Spur Highway near MP 19, close to the South Miller Loop Road intersection. The reroute then turns northeast onto undeveloped land continuing for approximately 1 mile before turning northwest on the west side of Cabin Lake. The reroute then turns west at North Miller Loop Road until it merges with the Kenai Spur Highway north of MP 22.
