GSA to Host Public Meeting for the New Alcan Land Port of Entry

Public Scoping Meeting begins conversation with local community 

TACOMA, Wash. ㅡ In compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), the U.S. General Services Administration will host a public meeting in support of an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the expansion and modernization of the Alcan Land Port of Entry, located near Tok, Alaska. The public is invited to attend the virtual meeting on Wednesday, April 26, 2023, from 5:00pm – 7:00pm Alaska Daylight Time. 

The meeting will be conducted in an open house format. GSA will offer the public an opportunity to hear about the project and learn how they can provide input on the issues that are important to the community. This input is a valuable step in the process and will be used by GSA to determine the scope and content of the EIS. 

WHEN: Wednesday, April 26th from 5:00pm – 7:00pm AKDT

WHERE: Online meeting hosted via Zoom.

WHO: General public

The Alcan LPOE is the only year-round, full service, 24-hour port of entry serving personal vehicles and commercial truck traffic between Yukon Territory, Canada, and Interior Alaska. It’s situated in a remote location along the Alaska Highway. Established in 1972, the facility is now over 50 years old and in urgent need of replacement. The new facility, funded by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, will meet the U.S. Custom and Border Protection’s (CBP) current mission requirements, improve customer service to travelers and provide a comfortable working and living environment for CBP personnel and their families.

GSA is currently exploring multiple possibilities for the new Alcan LPOE, including relocating the port to a new site approximately 4 miles to the northwest of the Alaska-Canada border. Additionally, GSA and CBP are considering a port operated in conjunction with the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA). 

The public is encouraged to provide written comments regarding the scope of the EIS at the meeting and throughout the comment period. Comments referencing Notice #P–2023–01  will be accepted though Monday, May 15, 2023 via the following methods:
