Abbott Road Rehabilitation
Alaska Project No. Z539420000 Federal Project No. 0506003
Welcome to the Abbott Road Rehabilitation project website!
PROJECT STATUS & DESCRIPTION
The State of Alaska Department of Transportation & Public Facilities is designing improvements to two miles of Abbott Road between Lake Otis Parkway and Birch Road in Anchorage. The portion of Abbott Road between Elmore Road and Birch Road has the highest crash rate of any Anchorage Hillside collector. Drivers of this corridor currently experience delays and long queues during their morning and evening commutes. The project will be constructed in two phases. Phase I, which extends from Lake Otis Parkway to Jupiter Drive is under construction summer of 2016. Phase II, which extends from Jupiter Drive to Birch Road is slated for construction in summer of 2018. The Phase II date is dependent upon funding, acquiring property, obtaining permits, and other items which could change the construction date.
This is a 3R (Resurfacing, Restoration and Rehabilitation) project. The primary purpose of a 3R project is to improve the riding surface and enhance operating conditions and safety. These projects preserve and extend the service life of existing roadways - safety is their essential element. They are developed and designed in a manner that identifies and incorporates safety improvements. Economic considerations are also a major factor in determining their priority and scope.
