In summer 2018, the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities (DOT&PF), in cooperation with the City and Borough of Juneau (CBJ), developed and evaluated traffic control concepts that would 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 during morning and evening commuting periods at the intersection of Riverside Drive and Stephen Richards Drive. Traffic congestion at the four-way stop intersection creates delays and additional emissions in the Mendenhall Valley air quality maintenance area.
Intersection improvements may include:
DOT&PF 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.
