Roads

As a second-class Borough, the Ketchikan Gateway Borough only exercises road powers as a service area function: more information about service areas can be found here.

Outside Service Areas, the Public Works Director has the authority to determine road construction conditions as set forth in Ketchikan Gateway Borough Code 12.20.020.  In 2012, the Public Works Department adopted a set of minimal road construction standards as a guideline for issuing Title 12 permits.  Engineered plans, or those for commercial or industrial use, may differ from the standards set forth in that document.  Any proposed road construction must meet the construction requirements determined by the Public Works Department and the jurisdictional Fire Department, and those required at the time of preliminary plat.
