Project scope

The scope of this project may be included in the Alaska DOT's plans for the Seward Highway expansion.

Project need

This project will construct a missing road link between Lore Rd and Dimond Blvd. While this is a local road, the realignment of the Seward Hwy off-ramp to Sandlewood Dr and the installation of the new signal, increased the broader community need for this connection. The connection will also allow for elimination of a problematic left turn onto the Seward Hwy frontage road just east of the bridge.

Project status

No work is underway or scheduled in the six-year Capital Improvement Program. Funding would be through the 30/70 Upgrade Road Improvement District Program in which property owners initiate the project and agree to pay 70% of the costs through special assessments. However, improvements by the State of Alaska to the Seward Highway, may include improvements to this road.
