Port of Anchorage has vulnerability to liquefaction in an earthquake says a CH2M Hill report

A recent study concluded that three of four recently constructed segments of a new port facility in Anchorage, Alaska were not constructed correctly and even if they were, are vulnerable to liquefaction related damage during an earthquake. The $2.2M study was performed by CH2M Hill for the US Army Corps of Engineers and the Federal Maritime Commission. A draft was issued in November, and was recently approved by Anchorage's Geotechnical Advisory Commision and the final version of the report addressing the Commission's comments should be soon to follow. CH2M Hill is conducting an additional $500K of work to lay out options. [Source: Alaska Journal of Commerce. Image: Mark Meyer Photography]
