BETHEL, Alaska (AP) - Construction crews are working on an environmental protection project at the Bethel small boat harbor.

KYUK (https://is.gd/Dj5Kvf) reports that crews are sloping the banks of the harbor and adding armor rock to protect it in the future.

Bethel port director Pete Williams says embankments have sloughed off into the harbor, causing it to get rather shallow.

This summer’s state-funded, $3.7 million work is among the final steps of a multi-year dredging and harbor improvement project.

The work will involve reinforcement of the entrance channel. Crews also will be working on stabilizing the north and south sides of the harbor, and they will finish with the west side.

The work is slated for completion in mid-September.
