Sterling Highway Milepost 82.5 to 94


project logo

The Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities (DOT&PF) is proposing to improve safety and reduce congestion for people and motorized vehicles traveling along the Sterling Highway between Sterling and Soldotna. This project will address known safety concerns - which led to Traffic Safety Corridor designation on this section of the Sterling Highway in 2009 - by providing travelers with a safe and reliable roadway that supports the efficient year-round movement of goods, services, and people while accommodating the seasonal increase of tourist and recreational traffic.

The proposed project will reconstruct the Sterling Highway from milepost 82.5 to 94. Current traffic and crash data will be analyzed to determine the number and configuration of travel and turn lanes and may consist of multiple options to best meet the various needs along the corridor. Additional improvements may also include:

  • Separated bike/pedestrian pathway along the north side of the highway
  • Turn lanes
  • Intersection realignments
  • Highway lighting

Note: The design will not change the existing five-lane highway configuration in Sterling or Soldotna.
