Airport Way (West) Improvements Project No: NH-610(4)/61872

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:

  • Resurfacing Airport Way from the Fairbanks International Airport terminal to the Parks Highway eastbound ramp
  • Resurfacing Dale Road, Hoselton Road, Old Airport Road, and Wein Lake Road
  • Construction of a bike and pedestrian path along Dale Road and Hoselton Road
  • Construction of shoulders on Old Airport Road
  • Addition of right turn auxiliary lane on Airport Way at Dale Road
  • Drainage improvements
  • Sign and guardrail replacements
  • Lighting improvements

lack of shoulders poor drainage on Old Airport

Survey work is currently being completed in the project area. Construction is expected to begin in 2019, pending completion of the environmental document and right-of-way acquisition.

Please note: the previously proposed roundabout has been removed from consideration as a project alternative due to lack of area traffic growth.
