Glenn Highway MP 34-42 Reconstruction Project
The Glenn Highway reconstruction project, Parks Highway to Old Glenn Highway, will reconstruct the Glenn Highway from milepost 34 to 42 to accommodate increasing traffic. It will add lanes, widen shoulders, accommodate turning movements at designated turn pockets, and add other traffic and safety improvements. The final roadway will be a four-lane divided highway.
The project is to be completed in two phases due to limitations of project funding, right-of-way acquisition and design challenges. Phase 1 construction starts in 2018. The phases are listed below and shown on the following map:
- Phase 1 – South Inner Springer Loop to West Arctic Avenue. Most of the construction in 2018 will be utility relocations with the bulk of the work occurring in 2019. For more information on construction go to Alaska Navigator website or call the project hotline at 907-373-0061.
- Phase 2 – Parks Highway to South Inner Springer Loop. Design work is ongoing on with construction anticipated in 2020, following on the heels of Phase 1, pending the availability of funding. The project team continues to work with adjacent property owners on acquisition of the right-of-way needed for the project.
