(ANCHORAGE, Alaska) – Matanuska-Susitna Borough officials and Alaska Department of Transportation & Public Facilities are partnering to restore and reopen Vine Road between Shady Grove Lane and Country Wood Drive.

Vine Road suffered remarkable damage during the Nov. 30 earthquake that caused widespread impacts to property and infrastructure throughout Southcentral Alaska. DOT&PF has assigned a construction manager to the project and is working with private contractor, Northern Asphalt Construction to start repairs.

DOT&PF will be providing ongoing updates to the repairs on the department website at dot.alaska.gov/earthquake2018/

The Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities oversees 239 airports, 10 ferries serving 35 communities, more than 5,600 miles of highway and 731 public facilities throughout the state of Alaska. The mission of the department is to “Keep Alaska Moving through service and infrastructure.”
