Seward Meridian Parkway Road Improvements, Phase II: Palmer-Wasilla Highway to Seldon Road


Construction on this project started in 2024. You can keep up with the latest traffic impacts at

The Seward Meridian Parkway was originally constructed in 1982 and was designed to serve as a rural two-lane connecter between three larger, primary roads in the area (the Parks Highway, the Palmer-Wasilla Highway, and Bogard Road). As Wasilla has grown, so has the average amount of daily traffic on the Seward Meridian Parkway, creating the need for increased vehicle capacity and pedestrian facilities.

The first phase of this project, which upgraded the Seward Meridian Parkway from the Parks Highway to Palmer-Wasilla Highway was completed in 2012.

Project Purpose and Details

project area

We are working to enhance safety for drivers, pedestrians, bicyclists, and other road users by upgrading the road. We will increase capacity to accommodate higher traffic volumes and we will improve non-motorized mobility by adding a paved multi-use path along the full length of the road, which will connect to the exiting path at the Palmer-Wasilla Highway.

Additional work on this project will include:

  • Extending the road to Seldon Road
  • Adding new traffic signals at East Country Field Circle, E. Meridian Park Loop / E. Birch View Drive, Bogard Road, Tambert Drive, and Seldon Road
  • Widening the road to the west (except at Alcantra Armory)
  • Adding turn lanes
  • Constructing 8-foot-wide paved shoulders
  • Constructing a bridge over Cottonwood Creek
  • Adding additional parking at Cottonwood Creek
  • Improving access for the schools along the project corridor
  • Relocating utilities including underground gas lines, telephone, TV, and electrical poles

How Will This Impact Me?

Construction on this project is underway! Crews are already working throughout the project area to clear trees and relocate utilities. Expect flagging operations and brief delays while driving through the project area. Continue to check for traffic updates. We expect construction to last through 2026.
