GLACIER HIGHWAY, FRITZ COVE ROAD to SEAVIEW AVENUE ROAD CONSTRUCTION through late October
What You Need to Know
  • Please be alert to lane restrictions, flagging operations, trucks and equipment surrounding the Auke Creek culver from approximately 7:00am to 5:00pm daily. 
  • Be alert to reduced lanes and flaggers in the area and exercise caution when driving near personnel and equipment.

There is a permanent work zone adjacent to the Auke Creek Culvert. Expect concrete barriers in this area as well as a closure of Auke Lake Way and access to Chapel by the Lake. Chapel of the Lake users should use the detour route shown below and follow detour signs in this area. This zone will initially allow for two lanes of traffic to flow around the zone, but will eventually shift to a single lane with flaggers for an extended time during this work. Please use caution when passing through the work zone, watch for equipment and construction personnel, and don’t hesitate to ask if you have any questions

Project End Result

The Alaska Department of Transportation, in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration and Contractor, SECON, is working to reconstruct Glacier Highway between Fritz Cove Road and Seaview Avenue in Auke Bay, Alaska. This project will improve roadway safety, roadway geometry, intersection configurations, pedestrian access, driveway configurations, roadway illumination and drainage. This is a two phase project: Phase 1 (2017) is from Fritz Cove Road to the Backloop Roundabout and Phase 2 (2018) is from the Backloop Roundabout to Seaview Avenue.
