East College Road Resurfacing
Project No. 0640013/NFHWY00645
Northern Region ADA Improvements – Fairbanks: College Road
Project No. 0640014/NFHWY00591

The Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities (DOT&PF), in cooperation with the Alaska Division of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) proposes to resurface College Road between the Margaret/Antionette and Old Steese Highway intersections and the interchange ramps at the Johansen Expressway located in Fairbanks Alaska.

Project area.

The purpose of these projects is to extend College Road’s service life and to allow for improved pedestrian mobility by bringing the adjacent pedestrian facilities in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

These projects are needed because the existing pavement is deteriorating and is in need of replacement. Additional project improvements include removing and replacing non-compliant ADA ramps, crosswalks, sections of sidewalk, regrading selected driveway tie-ins, replacing segments of curb and gutter that have settled or been damaged by snow removal equipment, replacing old or non-standard roadway signage, replacing pavement markings, and replacing an existing traffic counter/classification station in front of Costco.

Anticipated construction impacts

  • Construction began in summer 2023 and is expected to last through fall 2024
  • There will be nighttime and daytime work, and drivers should expect single lane closures during the day
  • The on and off ramps to the Johansen Expressway will be periodically closed throughout the summer for stints of fewer than three days at a time
