SEWARD HIGHWAY, DIMOND BOULEVARD to DOWLING ROAD RECONSTRUCTION, PHASE I ROAD CONSTRUCTION through the season
What You Need to Know
  • Thank you for your patience and cooperation during this season’s construction.

  • Please be alert to the NEW TRAFFIC PATTERN at Lore Road and the Meadow Street/ Sandlewood Place intersection. All Lore Road traffic has the right of way, and all Meadow Street/Sandlewood Traffic must stop and yield to Lore Road traffic at this intersection.

  • Due to the new connection at Sandlewood Place and Lore Road, Municipality of Anchorage (MOA) street maintenance will increase snow removal activities within this area during the winter. Please check the MOA ordinances in regard to snow removal on MOA maintained streets. MOA right of way (ROW) enforces violations. Please follow all advance notices for snow removal activities throughout the winter, including: no parking zones, fire lanes and other designated areas.

  • Homer Drive and a major portion of Brayton Drive are expected to be open in or by November. However, note that both frontage roads will be CLOSED again next spring for more improvements such as a new roundabout, bike lanes, concrete sidewalk, curb ramps, approaches and driveway improvements. This project is expected to be complete by the end of 2018. Have a great and safe winter, we’ll see you next spring.

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.
