The Alaska Department of Transportation, in cooperation with HC Contractors, is working to upgrade the Cushman Street Bridge over the Chena River. These upgrades include seismic bracing the girders and piers, installing new driving surface, restricting the lanes from three to two, widening sidewalks, as well as constructing a new ADA pedestrian path to connect with the path alongside the river. This project also includes installing a new lighting system and traffic lights at the Cushman Street and 1st Avenue intersection, as well as the Cushman Street and Doyon Place intersection.
