Highway delays expected
Road and bridge work is underway from Mile 22.4 to 25.4 of the Seward Highway. On Mondays through Saturdays until April 21 drivers can expect single-lane traffic, short delays and 24-hour flagging operations, according to the Alaska Department of Transportation. The department and Hamilton Construction Company ask that drivers be alert to heavy equipment and construction workers on the roadway and shoulder.
The construction is an ongoing project of the Alaska Department of Transportation, in partnership with Hamilton Construction Company, to improve travel on the Seward Highway, from Trail River to Ptarmigan Creek. Work includes replacement of the Trail River, Falls Creek and Ptarmigan Creek bridges and widening of the Seward Highway Mile 22.4 to 25.4. The project is scheduled to be completed by June 2013.
