A representative from the Port of Alaska discussed proposed dock upgrades during today's Greater Fairbanks Chamber of Commerce Luncheon.
Officials say the Port of Alaska in Anchorage will start closing down in 9 years unless the docks are rebuilt.
The port was built in the 1960's, and has been needing upgrades for years.
Rebuilding the docks could cost as much as $2 billion over the duration of the project.
