Welcome to the Palmer-Wasilla Highway Eastern Terminus Project Web Site.
After a lengthy public involvement process conducted over the last three years, the State of Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities (DOT&PF) and the Project Team have developed and chosen a preferred alternative to address congestion, safety and future traffic concerns at the intersection of the Glenn Highway with the Palmer-Wasilla Highway / Evergreen Avenue. The preferred alternative consists of improving the section of the Palmer-Wasilla Highway between Hemmer Road and the Glenn Highway and the nearby routes of Dogwood Avenue and Felton Street. Glenn Highway and Evergreen Avenue improvements will be undertaken as part of the DOT&PF's larger Glenn Highway MP 34-42 Reconstruction Project. Design plans are developed to 95% completion.
The first phase of construction will construct improvements on the Palmer-Wasilla Highway. Phase 1 is still in ROW acquisition but this phase is expected to be advertised in January 2016 with construction beginning in May 2016. There is not funding available to construct Phase 2 at this time.
