- Beginning Monday, August 19, access to Whittier Street on the waterside of Egan Drive will be OPEN. Please be aware of traffic revisions as this work is weather dependent and may be adjusted as necessary. The Whittier Street traffic signal will not be operational during this time.
- An unprotected pedestrian crossing with crossing flags will be available at the Whittier Street intersection to access the Coast Guard Station, Tracy’s Crab Shack, the State of Alaska overflow parking, and Heat Street. Heat Street is the road that is between the Coast Guard Station and the State of Alaska overflow parking lot.
- The sidewalk between the Seadrome building and the Merchant’s Wharf on the waterside of Egan will be closed; pedestrian access to the Seadrome building will be maintained via Heat Street.
- All other pedestrian access will be maintained on the mountainside of Egan. For your safety, please follow posted detour routes and do not enter work zones.
- Left turns will be restricted on-to or off-of Egan Drive between Main Street and Whittier Street to ensure the best possible flow of traffic through the work zone.
- Drivers should be aware of traffic control on Egan Drive from Main Street to Glacier Avenue, with ONE-LANE TRAFFIC open in each direction.
- All businesses will have access to their establishments and are open regular hours during construction.
