Project Description

The Alaska Department of Transportation & Public Facilities (ADOT&PF) proposes to upgrade the Old Steese Highway between the 3rd Street and Johansen Expressway intersections. 

The purpose of the project is to improve traffic flow and safety for motorized and non-motorized users along the corridor.  Proposed project improvements include:

  • Sidewalk widening and ADA improvements
  • Addition of roadway shoulders, traffic through, right and left turn lanes
  • Traffic signal and street lighting upgrades

The project has been broken into two segments (stages):

  1. Reconstruct the road between Kutter Road intersection to the Johansen Expresseway intersection.
  2. Re-pave the road between the 3rd Street intersection to the Kutter Road intersection

In preparation for the construction projects, ADOT&PF is currently finalizing the horizontal roadway geometry to determine Right-of-Way (ROW) needs.  Then we will begin the process of acquiring additional ROW needed for the project.

Current Milestones:

  • 2021-2023 acquire Right-of-Way
  • Winter 2021/2022 Environmental Document approved
  • Winter 2022/2023 Preliminary Design
  • Fall 2023 Final Design
  • Spring 2024 Begin Construction
