NEW TRAFFIC PATTERN: Southbound Seward Highway traffic has shifted from the Seward Highway to Homer Drive, which now acts the southbound Seward Highway. Northbound Seward Highway traffic has shifted from the Seward Highway to Brayton Drive, which now acts as the northbound Seward Highway. Be alert to a reduced speed limit of 45 MPH throughout the construction zone.

Please note that no side road access will be permitted to and from the Homer Drive and Brayton Drive frontage roads during construction.

What You Need to Know

Traffic Impacts

Beginning in spring 2017, be alert to day and night work. The Seward Highway will be CLOSED during these times, with DETOUR routes in effect along the Homer Drive and Brayton Drive frontage roads. More specific traffic impact information will be available closer to the project start date. 

Project End Result

The Alaska Department of Transportation, in cooperation with QAP, is working to expand the Seward Highway from Dimond Boulevard to Dowling Road, reconfigure highway ramps and frontage roads, extend Sandlewood Place, construct a new grade separation at 76th Avenue and build new box culvert crossings for Little Campbell Creek. This project is expected to be completed in June 2019.
