North Pole Woll Road Resurfacing and Widening     Project Number: NFHWY00448

Purpose and Need

Project area.

The purpose of this project is to widen and resurface Woll Road in North Pole, from Bradway Road to Schut Road, to improve safety for vehicles and pedestrians. Currently Woll Road does not facilitate pedestrians due to lack of shoulders. A widened road facility will provide space for pedestrians to use it alongside vehicles.

Project Scope

  • Resurface and widen the road
  • Improve drainage where needed to accommodate the widened road
  • Update roadway signs and replace existing mailboxes
  • Coordinate new work with existing utilities and maintain existing facilities

Mailbox Replacement

This project includes replacing mailboxes along the road. When we replace mailboxes, we provide the mailbox container and build new supports that meet our specifications. Proper mailbox supports are important because they are less likely to cause injury or death if a vehicle leaves the road. Also, when a mailbox and support that meet our specifications is damaged by a snow plow, our maintenance staff will replace it at no charge to you.

Although the mailbox supports must adhere to a specific design, you can supply any mailbox container that meets United States Postal Service requirements. If you would like to supply your own approved mailbox container or have other questions about mailboxes, please email ivet.hall@alaska.gov.
