Project End Result

The Alaska Department of Transportation is working to widen the highway shoulders and install four large diameter culverts. Construction for the 2019 season will primarily occur at Slikok Tributary, Crooked Creek, and Clam Gulch. The Coal Creek culvert will be replaced as a part of improvements, and the adjacent areas revegetated and restored. Construction work includes pavement removal, unclassified excavation, embankment, grading, paving, stream diversions, stream channel construction, stream bank construction, culvert installation, signing, and striping. This project is scheduled to be completed in summer 2020.
