Elvey Building getting new 9-meter dish

Question

What is going on in front of the Elvey Building with the fenced in area?

Response

The 10-meter dish on top of the Elvey Building is being replaced by a new 9-meter dish that will retrieve scientific information from polar-orbiting satellites. The data will be used by the Alaska Satellite Facility located within the Elvey Building. The work related to the antenna swap-out will affect the area from March 6-19. Regular access is expected to resume on Monday, March 20.
