- Drivers should be alert to a southbound SINGLE-LANE CLOSURE at MP 46.5 (Railroad Overpass).
- Be aware of a NEW TRAFFIC PATTERN. Northbound Parks Highway traffic will be using crossovers at the bridge and northbound and southbound traffic will run in a two traffic configuration over the old railroad overpass. This traffic pattern should be in place for 7 days.
- Speed limits have been REDUCED from 55 MPH to 45 MPH throughout this construction zone.
Be alert to workers and equipment on the roadway shoulder.
The Alaska Department of Transportation, in cooperation with Knik Construction, is working to upgrade the Parks Highway. Upon completion, the Parks Highway, between MP 44.5 to 48.8, will be reconstructed from a two-lane highway to a four-lane divided highway, a new bridge will be installed at MP 46.5, and continuous lighting and new signals will be installed at Church Road, Stanley Road, Vine Road and Pittman Road. This project is scheduled to be complete by July 2018.
