- Crews are working at multiple locations to install traffic detection equipment.
- Drivers should be aware of temporary traffic control zones, warning signs at work zones for utility installations and testing.
- Drivers should expect construction crews and equipment along the highway shoulder near the Automatic Vehicle Classification (AVC) stations at the following locations:
- MP 350.5 of the Parks Highway, near Ester
- Airport Way, west of Steese Expressway

The State of Alaska Department of Transportation, in partnership with Lakloey, Inc., and in collaboration with the Department of Transportation Traffic Data and Forecasting section, is installing traffic detection equipment at various locations and adjoining highways and roads throughout the Northern Region. Project work includes roadside excavation and installation of radar, electrolier poles for AVC and Radar, in-roadway piezoelectric sensors, and radar-based traffic detection equipment. Work will occur in fall and early winter of 2018 and continue in spring and summer of 2019. This project is expected to be completed by August 2019.
