The Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities (DOT&PF) proposes a project to reduce traffic congestion at the intersection of Stephen Richards and Riverside Drive in Mendenhall Valley.
The purpose of the project is to reduce traffic congestion which occurs during morning and evening commuting periods at the intersection of Stephen Richards Memorial Drive and Riverside Drive. Traffic congestion at the four-way stop intersection creates delays and emissions in an air quality maintenance area – the Mendenhall Valley.
This project will assess and evaluate intersection concepts to reduce congestion and limit resultant traffic delays and emissions.
DOT&PF has contracted consultants Kinney Engineering to analyze the Riverside Drive / Stephen Richards Memorial Drive intersection and to develop traffic control alternatives to reduce congestion in the area.
A preliminary review of the intersection's performance was presented to DOT&PF in an Existing Conditions Report.
