What You Need to Know
  • Pedestrian and bicycle traffic should follow DETOURS around the construction area. Drivers can use Yukon Drive on upper campus as a DETOUR ROUTE through the university. 
  • Central campus is accessible from Farmers Loop Road through Kuskokwim Drive or from Thompson Drive to Yukon Drive.

The Alaska Department of Transportation, in cooperation with Exclusive Paving, is working to upgrade the intersection of Tanana Loop and South Chandalar Drive. Work includes realigning Salcha Street and Tanana Loop east of Chandalar Drive, realigning Chandalar Drive north of the intersection, replacing storm drain systems, constructing pedestrian pathways to meet ADA requirements, and installing new street lighting throughout the project. This project is expected to be complete in August 2020.
