The Alaska Department of Transportation & Public Facilities (ADOT&PF), in cooperation with the Alaska Division of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), proposes to rehabilitate the Tok Cutoff between mile points 38 and 50.
Rehabilitate the Tok Cutoff Highway between MP 38-50. Improvements will include drainage, embankment stabilization and rebuilding pavement structure. Project also includes bridge rail upgrades and deck repairs to the Indian River Bridge #651.
The purpose of this project is to improve safety and reduce maintenance requirements along the project corridor. It is needed because the road experiences excessive frost heaving and settlement due to subgrade failure and drainage problems.
