Project scope

Construct a minor arterial with an underpass at the New Seward Hwy. Improvements are expected to include pavement, curb and gutter, storm drains, street lights, pedestrian facilities on both sides, and possible landscaping.

Project need

The Dimond Center area is one of the most congested in the city. Creating alternatives is the top priority for the Taku/Campbell Community Council and a high priority for the State of Alaska as well. This project will enhance traffic circulation by taking significant load off Dimond Boulevard.

Project status

Design is funded and underway by the State of Alaska. The State project has three main components: a) An underpass at 92nd Ave, b) upgrading 92nd Ave (Abbott Rd) west to the Old Seward Hwy, and c) upgrading 92nd Ave (Academy St) east to Vanguard Dr. The western section will be completed in 2017.
