Icefall Hazard Evaluation and Mitigation Study Phase II

Phase I of this research project included a Literature Review and evaluation of Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities (DOT&PF) management and operations (M&O) data, as-builts, and recommendations for Phase II analysis approach. Phase II includes specialized technical assistance relative to location-specific icefall hazard evaluation and mitigation.
