Beginning 6:00am Saturday, May 30 through 5:30am Thursday, June 4, the Palmer-Wasilla Highway will be CLOSED between Hurley Drive and Cottonwood Creek. One-lane access will be maintained for residents and businesses in the area. Drivers should be alert to PILOT CAR operations. Please follow the posted DETOUR ROUTES via the Parks Highway and Seward Meridian Parkway.
- Lanes are being shifted over from Hurley Drive to the Seward Meridian Parkway. Drivers should expect flagging operations as crews perform utility work. Pathway flagging is ongoing for pedestrian protection in various areas throughout the project.
- Work will include subexcavation of the northern side of the Palmer-Wasilla Highway, which will be followed by construction of new lanes and then repaving of the highway from Hurley Drive to Seward Meridian by mid-June.
- Be aware of crews performing surveying and clearing operations, as well as trucks and equipment in the project area while crews perform potholing operations.
The Alaska Department of Transportation, in cooperation with QAP, is working to widen the Palmer-Wasilla Highway to create a two-way center left-turn only lane. Project work includes grading, drainage, paving, pathway, signing and striping.
