Project need

Traffic already exceeds the capacity of the existing facility.

Project status

The first phase of the project began construction in 2016 and will be completed in 2017. This is a state-owned facility and evaluation and future funding would be by the State of Alaska. The route is identified as a freeway in the Official Streets and Highways Plan. The project is also included in the Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP). A state grant for the underpass was provided by the Legislature but additional funding is now required to complete construction.
