The Alaska Department of Transportation is working to improve travel on the Sterling Highway from the highway’s junction with the Seward Highway westbound to Skilak Lake Road, roughly from mile 37 to 58.
Work will include resurfacing, improved drainage, new signage, guardrails and striping.
Work from mile 37 to 45 is expected to be completed in June of 2013, and mile 45 to 58 is scheduled to be completed in August of 2014.
DOT Crews are asking drivers to be alert to single-lane traffic and flagging operations on the Sterling Highway near mile 52 on the west side of Cooper Landing.
Crews will be conducting pilot car and flagging operations, from the Sterling/Seward Highway Junction through Cooper Landing for nighttime striping operations.
Pilot car and flagging operations will also take place on the Sterling Highway from mile 45 in Cooper Landing to Skilak Lake, Mondays through Thursdays between 8:00pm and 9:00am, and on Fridays and Sundays from 10:00pm to 9:00am.
Drivers can also expect daily single-lane traffic, with flagging and pilot car operations throughout the project.
