Project End Result

The Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities, in cooperation with HC Contractors, is working to upgrade Badger Road between Dennis Road and Hurst Road to accommodate a two-way left-turn lane that will reduce turning-related crashes. Work will include striping, installing drainage, signing and street lighting, as well as widening Badger Road and reconstructing driveway approaches.
