Making cat tracks from Prudhoe Bay to Anchorage
Lynden Transport Account Manager Sam Amato took the photo below during a project for customer Marsh Creek. Lynden moved 160-plus loads of contaminated soil from Franklin Bluffs near Prudhoe Bay to Anchorage. The soil is coming in via cat train. “The soil originates in Umiat, AK and is hauled on a two-day trip via the cat train to Franklin Bluffs,” Sam explains. “They bring in around 80 bags per train to Franklin for us to haul. This was a large project and we hauled about 50 loads north to get it started.” For two years prior to this project, Lynden was busy hauling the “cat” train to Prudhoe Bay for the customer. The cat equipment is custom built in Ohio and Edmonton.
