There have been two past projects completed in the Fairview Loop corridor. In 2015, Fairview Loop was resurfaced between Canter Place and Candywine Road as a 1R (pavement preservation) project and in 2017, the intersections of Knik-Goose Bay Road with South Clapp Street and Fairview Loop were realigned into a single, signalized intersection and turn lanes were added to improve safety.

In response to public comments, the project team will be evaluating whether to include the following concepts into the

Fairview Loop final scope of improvements:

  • Intersection improvements at Hayfield Road/Lupine Lane
  • Extending the pathway from Lookout Drive to Fern Street
  • Improved roadside drainage
  • Improved side street and driveway approaches
  • Improved signage and striping from Top of the World Circle to Fireweed Road
  • Locations for additional roadside hazard mitigation (guardrail)


A new federal project has been established for the design and construction of the Fairview Loop project. The wholly state funded project (Project No. Z560200000) remains active and right-of-way acquisitions are ongoing for the safety improvements east of Fern Street. The federal environmental process is expected to take approximately 1 year to complete, and project design, right-of-way and utility relocation designs will continue in parallel.


Project schedule
*Schedule is contingent on available funding, right-of-way acquisition progress, and utility relocation progress.
