The proposed rail-only project would result in an approximately 32-mile rail line in the Susitna River valley. The rail line would travel north from the port facility and connect to the existing rail system at a point near Houston.
The new rail line would be an extension of the ARRC system, which currently connects ports in Seward, Whittier, and Anchorage with Interior Alaska, including Denali National Park, Fairbanks, and North Pole.
The track will lie roughly in the center of a 200-foot right-of-way. The project proposes a rail with a corresponding maintenance road. A public road is not included.
