Project Header - No action


This project was initiated and its purpose and need were defined in the mid/late 2000s. Early in the project, many primary engineering options were considered; some of the options were dismissed and some of them later became a part of the proposed alternative. Following project scoping (2011), a series of special environmental studies were completed and preliminary engineering was conducted (2012 –2016). 

Project Schedule: The Seward Highway MP 17-22.5 Rehabilitation Project is currently in its final design phase, wherein DOT&PF engineers are working to bring the project design to a 75% completion level. Once the 75% design is reviewed, the department will need to purchase some properties along the project corridor prior to construction.

Outreach activities for this phase of the project began in 2013 and will continue through construction. Construction is slated to begin in the summer of 2017, pending available funding and many other factors, and is anticipated to take 2 to 3 years to complete. 

Phasing Map

Construction phasing

The project is proposed to be constructed in two phases. The first phase of project construction will rehabilitate MP 75 to 77.7 (Placer River Overflow), and MP 81 to 90, and is anticipated to begin in 2018. Phase 2 will construct MP 77.7 to 81 and is anticipated to begin in 2020. Each phase is anticipated to take approximately two years to construct. Dates are projected and subject to change, based on availability of funding and other factors.

As Phase One includes two sections of roadway on either side of the Phase Two area, the entire 15-mile project corridor will be impacted by seasonal construction once Phase One has begun.
