Project End Result

The Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities, in cooperation with HC Contractors, is working to upgrade Badger Road between Dennis Road and Hurst Road to accommodate a two-way left-turn lane that will reduce turning-related crashes. Work will include striping, installing drainage, signing and street lighting, as well as widening Badger Road and reconstructing driveway approaches. This project is expected to be complete in October 2019.
