The Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities (DOT&PF), in cooperation with the Alaska Division Office of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), is proposing to resurface and improve the western end of Airport Way, including construction of a bike and pedestrian path. The proposed project includes:
The purpose of this project is to improve pavement conditions, minimize maintenance costs, provide increased safety and connectivity for area users, and extend the usable life of the Airport Way corridor between Wein Lake Road and the Parks Highway.
The project is currently in final design and right-of-way impacts are in the process of being determined. Construction is expected to begin in 2021.
Please note: the previously proposed roundabout has been removed from consideration as a project alternative due to lack of area traffic growth.
