Pioneer Avenue pavement project delayed to 2019

Construction on the Pioneer Avenue pavement restoration project has been delayed to 2019. According to a press release from the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities, construction will be pushed forward to 2019 while the department obtains the necessary right-of-way. The existing roadway alignment has areas located outside the public right-of-way that must be corrected before construction.

The project will extend the service life of Pioneer Avenue by removing ruts, cracks and potholes, and protect pavement structural materials. Other work includes curb ramp upgrades as required by the Americans with Disabilities Act, structural section repairs, storm drain repairs, striping and signing. The project also may include minor work to improve the safety and operation of the road.
