Prior phases of this project resurfaced Fairview Loop Road between Canter Place and Candywine Road (2015) and realigned Fairview Loop Road at Knik-Goose Bay Road to improve safety (2017).

In response to public comments, the project team will also be evaluating whether to include the following work in the final improvements:

  • Intersection improvements at Hayfield Road/Lupine Lane
  • Extending pathway and road rehabilitation from Lookout Drive to Fern Street
  • Warning signage and roadside barriers from Top of the World Circle to the Alaska Railroad crossing

Federalization

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.

Schedule

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