Planned Gravel Site Partners in Eklutna
Two major forces in Anchorage team up to continue to supply gravel for the Anchorage Market. Eklutna, Inc. the Native Corporation for Anchorage known for being the largest private landowner has teamed with Davis Constructors one of the state’s largest general contractors. Davis is known for building high rise office buildings in Midtown and recently formed a subsidiary called Mass Excavation, Inc. Eklutna, Inc. owns a subsidiary, Eklutna Services, LLC which has become a competitive force in the construction market.
Both organizations are working to supply the local market with competitively priced aggregate products. We are pleased to announce taking a step toward achieving that goal by working with Mass Excavation, Inc. to operate the Eklutna Gravel Site.
Eklutna, Inc. is the largest private landowner in the Municipality of Anchorage and soon to be the largest private landowner in the Matanuska-Susitna Borough. As a land developer, Eklutna Inc. provides land for Residential, Industrial and Commercial use. Operating this gravel site will provide more accessible and affordable sand and gravel products to Southcentral Alaska.
In 2013, Mass Excavation, Inc. was awarded the contract to operate the Eklutna Gravel Site situated on 43 acres of land located southwest of the Eklutna Interchange on the Glenn Highway. The 43 acre site is divided into areas for aggregate processing, asphalt sales, pit run gravel and clean material disposal. Mass Excavation, Inc. plans to include an on-site scale house and credit card processing.
The Eklutna Gravel Site has been utilized as a gravel source since 2007, mutually benefiting CIRI, the subsurface owner, and Eklutna, the surface owner. Summer site operations began June 1 with seasonal operations open through October 15. Eklutna, Inc. will manage its North Eagle River disposal site separate from this agreement.
Products will be available from Monday through Saturday, 7:00 am to 5:00 pm, extended hours may be possible, please call for additional details. Credit applications and pricing sheets are available at 907-771-9272. You may reach the scale house direct at 907-688- 6895.
Josh Pepperd, President of Mass Excavation, Inc. praised the partnership and said that, “Together Mass Excavation, Inc. and Eklutna, Inc. will provide the needed sand and gravel products for projects in Anchorage, Eagle River and the Matanuska Valley to prosper.”
