The Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities (DOT&PF) in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration is planning to resurface Palmer-Fishhook Road from milepost 7 to 17. Improvements will begin at Wasilla-Fishhook Road and end at Gold Chord Road. The project will resurface the roadway with new asphalt, make minor structural section improvements, drainage improvements, and safety improvements.
The Palmer-Fishhook Road dates back to the early 1900's, supporting mining and early development activities in the area. It originally was constructed as a sled trail and eventually upgraded to light automobile standards. In 2000 the road was widened and paved. No substantial improvements have occurred since then.
Design is nearing completion.
The purpose of this pavement preservation project is to extend the service life of the facility.
Construction is anticipated to begin in 2025 or 2026 depending on the availability of funding.
