Project scope

This project will design and construct access and circulation improvements.

Project need

A state grant provided the funding for the development of a Master Plan for the West/Romig campus renovation. The road construction and access improvements are the first phase of implementing recommendations from this plan. Safety concerns have been raised with the current access arrangement at these schools. Traffic circulation is impacted due to school activities. Over 2,700 students attend these two schools and the school area is bordered by two major transportation routes (Minnesota Drive and Northern Lights Boulevard).

Project status

The school district has commissioned a study. No construction work is underway or scheduled in the six-year Capital Improvement Program. The project will remain on the Capital Project Needs List for evaluation and prioritization.

Please AMEND the Need language by ADDING the following: "Because of the complexity of the traffic flow and safety issues in and around the West/Romig campus, any proposed improvements need to be carefully evaluated, taking into consideration surrounding traffic flow and land uses." Please include the following information regarding funding for this project: The April 1, 2014, Anchorage School District Bond, which was approved, included $2.7M for "parking and site improvements" that will upgrade existing site driveways and parking areas for the West/Romig campus.

This is Turnagain Community Council's #13-ranked Roads & Drainage project. Please AMEND the Need language by ADDING the following, which TCC posted in 2015 as well: "Because of the complexity of the traffic flow and safety issues in and around the West/Romig campus, any proposed improvements need to be carefully evaluated, taking into consideration surrounding traffic flow and land uses."
