Engineering geology of the Katalla area, Alaska

January 1, 1956

A geological examination of the Katalla area, Alaska, was made during the summer of 1)55 at the request of and in cooperation with the Alaska Road Commission. The Katalla area herein defined lies in the Cordova A-1, A-2, B-1, and B-2 quadrangles (fig. 1), and encompasses most of the area considered as the Katalla district by previous investigators. This report describes the engineering geolocy of the Katalla segment of a proposed highway from Mile 39 on the Copper River Highway to Icy Bay, approximately 110 miles east of the town of Katalla. The completion of this highway and the Copper River Highway from Mile 39 to Chitin& will tie the Katalla and Cordova areas into the Alaska Highway net and the Alaska Railroad.
