Docking Facility Improvements
Kenai Fjord Tours (Ciri) hired TMC to remove a smaller facility and replace it with a new and improved docking facility.

Homer Ferry Terminal Improvements
Turnagain was contracted to refurbish the fender system on the Pioneer Dock in Homer Alaska. The upgrade includes the installation of 5 new energy absorbing fender panels, driving 10 new 24” diameter steel fender pin piles, the refurbishment of 4 existing fender panels, and the construction of a new covered pedestrian walkway. Puffin Electric was contracted to perform electrical upgrades and R&M Consulting is the engineer of record.
The project dredged and disposed of sediments the were deposited during 2012/2013 storm events that took place. The dredging was required to provide a safe berth and approach for the RV Sikuliaq. The RV Sikuliaq, is owned and operated by UAF Seward Marine Center, and could not safely dock at the facility and the dredging was conducted to reestablish the proper seabed elevation.
Approximately 13,900 CY of dredging was required to return the basin to an elevation of -35ft MLLW. The dredging took place alongside an existing dock that was also adjacent to an existing sheet pile wall. An offshore dredged materials disposal site was located approximately a ½ mile south of the project location and the material was disposed of at this location.
