North Slope Explorers

North Slope Explorers

Alaska’s North Slope is seeing a resurgence of activity. New companies and new projects—along with the maintenance and redevelopment of existing fields—have all played a role in the Slope’s recent growth.

New and Improved Airport Runways

New and Improved Airport Runways

According to the Alaska Airports Association: “Alaska has 287 public use land-based airports, 44 heliports, and approximately 735 recorded landing areas (private, public, and military) total. Of course pilots land on many of the thousands of lakes and gravel bars across the state where no constructed facility exists.”

Alaska’s Ports, Harbors, and Docks

Alaska’s Ports, Harbors, and Docks

Management of water access infrastructure is no easy task. As capital monies and legislative purse strings tighten, commercial and government agencies that oversee ports, harbors, and docks are feeling the pinch.

Flint Hills Refinery

Flint Hills Refinery

Community and business leaders in Fairbanks are very worried about the potential loss of the Flint Hills Resources refinery that operates at North Pole, east of the Interior city.

Lemonade Day Alaska

Lemonade Day Alaska

Growing up from a child to a responsible adult is one of the most exciting and even challenging transformations in life. Many people remember their first attempt at making their own money by mowing lawns or washing cars. The age old children’s business endeavor of opening up a lemonade stand is brought to the forefront with more than just money on the mind.

Ports and Airports: Funding falls short of needs

Two stories really stand out as we publish the May issue: “Alaska’s Ports, Harbors, and Docks: Integral to commerce and travel” (page 42) and “New and Improved Airport Runways: A key lifeline for rural Alaskans” (page 51). Both have the elements of transportation and construction at the forefront. Both get the point across that aviation and marine facilities are crucial to the movement of goods and people across Alaska, and although there are 4,900 miles of paved roads in the state, less than 20 percent of the communities in the state are connected by roads.
