Edgerton Highway MP 24-29 Resurfacing
Project No. 0850030/NFHWY00587

Project area.

The Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities (DOT&PF) is working to resurface the Edgerton Highway between MP 24 and MP 29.

The purpose of this preventive maintenance project is to improve safety and extend the highway service life.

The existing pavement between MP 24 and 29 has areas of localized settlement that require a high frequency of patching by DOT&PF’s maintenance forces. This project will mill, regrade, and repave the roadway to reduce the amount of maintenance necessary on this stretch of road. In addition to resurfacing, this project includes replacing existing signs, improving drainage, reapplying pavement markings, and replacing guardrail.

Work on this project includes:

  • Resurfacing the highway and approaches
  • Vegetation clearing
  • Replacing signs
  • Replacing guardrails and updating end terminals
  • Reapplying pavement markings

The contractor finished clearing vegetation for this project in fall 2023. Construction is expected to resume in May 2024 and be complete by the end of the season.

This project is being constructed in cooperation with the Alaska Division of the Federal Highway Administration/Federal Aviation Administration.
