Estimated Cost

$14,600,000

Funds on hand

$2 300 000

Additional funds required

$12,300,000

Project scope

Improvements are likely to include road realignment, pedestrian facilities, street lighting, and improved drainage.

Project need

When the 92nd Avenue underpass at the Seward Highway is constructed by the state, with a connection to Old Seward Highway, traffic along the connection between the Seward Highway and Abbott Road will increase. This new connection will enhance traffic circulation in the Abbott/Dimond area. The existing roadway is not built to handle the expected traffic volumes with the addition of the 92nd Avenue underpass of the Seward Highway.

Project status

Commencement of right-of-way acquisition is tentatively scheduled for this year with construction startup in 2019, however both are dependent upon additional funding. Initial design study was funded with 2009 and 2010 road bonds. The project is being coordinated with the ADOT 92nd Ave Underpass project expected to begin construction in 2021.
