The Alaska Department of Transportation, in cooperation with HC Contractors Inc., is working to reconstruct the intersection of Airport Way, Steese Expressway, Gaffney Road, and the Richardson Highway. Project work will include constructing a new intersection, with new separated right and left-turn lanes. Project work will also involve resurfacing the Steese Expressway between the aforementioned intersection and 3rd Street, as well as signal upgrades between Airport Way and College Road. Work will also include roadside hardware, drainage improvements, lighting improvements, and upgrading pedestrian pathways. This project is expected to be completed in October 2023.
