East and westbound traffic at the intersection of University Avenue, Geist Road, and the Johansen Expressway is CLOSED between Fairbanks Street and Peger Road. Geist Road businesses can be accessed via Geist Road, except Wells Fargo will need to be accessed via University Avenue.
- SINGLE-LANE TRAFFIC will be maintained for north and southbound traffic on University Avenue. Turns will not be permitted at the Geist Road/Johansen Expressway intersection.
- Bike and pedestrian access will be maintained throughout the construction zone.
- Please allow for additional travel time and plan to follow all construction signs for DETOUR routes. Peger Road has an additional RIGHT-TURN LANE to accommodate increased traffic turning onto Airport Way.
Drivers should expect DETOUR routes and SINGLE-LANE TRAFFIC for both north and southbound lanes of University Avenue, as well as temporary traffic signals.
The Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities, in partnership with Great Northwest, Inc., is working to widen and reconstruct the intersection of University Avenue and Geist Road/Johansen Expressway. University Avenue will also be repaved between Thomas Street and Wolf Run. We will do our best to keep you informed as work progresses and appreciate your patience and cooperation during construction.
