Additional funds required

$1,300,000

Project scope

Add light poles and LED light fixtures to the new Chester Creek Trail-Campbell Creek Trail Connection from the Tudor Road overpass all the way to Goose Lake Park.

Project need

Trail user safety is a priority for the Department and the residents of Anchorage. The Chester Creek-Creek Campbell Creek trail connection is a well used and recently installed multi-use greenbelt that completes the link between two major non-motorized transportation and recreation greenbelts within Anchorage. Trail safety will increase with the addition of lighting for the long winter months. LED technology continues to decrease in cost and the utility bills are a fraction of traditional lighting technology.

Project status

The department has recently completed transitions to LED technology at Beach Lake, a small segment at Russian Jack and the Speed skating Oval at Cuddy Family Midtown Park. We are currently in design and engineering to convert all of the ski trail lighting at Kincaid and Far North as well as the exiting lighting on Chester Creek and Campbell Creek. Completing this missing link is the next logical step.
