DOT Crews are asking drivers to be advised as work is resuming along the Sterling Highway. Crews will be working daily from the Seward Highway “Y” to Jim’s Landing.
Drivers can expect daily single-lane traffic, flagging, and pilot-car operations in the area from 7:00am to 7:00pm throughout the construction season.
Road crews are continuing the work aimed at improving travel along the 21-mile stretch of the Sterling Highway. Work will include resurfacing, improved drainage, new signage, guardrails and striping.
DOT is also asking drivers to be alert to lane restrictions, gravel surfaces, and flagging operations from North of Trail River Bridge to Falls Creek, between 7:00am and 7:00pm, daily, through June. DOT crews are also advising to be alert to heavy equipment and construction workers on the shoulder.
As we’ve reported, the Alaska Department of Transportation is working to improve travel on the Seward Highway, from Trail River to Ptarmigan Creek. Work will include replacement of the Trail River, Falls Creek and Ptarmigan Creek bridges, as well as, the widening of the Seward Highway from milepost 22.4 to 25.4.
The project is scheduled to be complete by June 2013.
