Knik begins Phase 2 of work


Tommy Wells

A Knik Construction employee uses a road grader to spread new asphalt at the corner of Adams Street and Fourth Avenue on Monday.

Seward residents will see major improvements in the downtown streets over the next few days as Knik Construction begins paving operations.

According to Seward City Clerk Johanna Kinney, crews will be working on the streets east of Third Ave. including Fifth Ave. and Sixth Ave. and the side streets this week. Crews are grinding and compacting in preparation for paving later in the week.

"This section will have the most impact on the public and local businesses," said Kinney in a release to the media. "Alternate routes and temporary closures will be required."

Streets already completed include Dieckgraeff Road (from Seward Highway to Maple Street), Ash and Oak Streets to the Seward Mountain Haven Long Term Care Facility, First and Second Avenues and their side streets, and Old Nash Road (additional job through DOT Maintenance). Knik Construction also poured 29 curb ramps in the downtown area. Miscellaneous work on the curb ramps will be ongoing over the next couple of weeks.

The attached map shows the next set of phases over the next few weeks – each phase will go through grinding, compacting and paving before the next phase begins.

If you have questions about this project, please call Public Works at 907-224-4093. These updates will also be posted on the main page of the city website.
