       ROAD CLOSURE

GLENN HIGHWAY CAPACITY IMPROVEMENT, PHASE II ROAD CONSTRUCTION through the season
Road Closure

Through the end of July, the southbound slow lane will be CLOSED from Eagle River Bridge to Hiland Road. Two lanes will remain open at all times.

What You Need to Know
  • Drivers should expect INTERMITTENT SHOULDER CLOSURES between the southbound Eagle River Bridge and Hiland Road, along the Glenn Highway, while crews work on clearing operations.
  • Beginning the week of Monday, July 29, crews will be working at night for two weeks. Drivers should be alert to nightly CLOSURES of the Hiland Road Off-ramp and follow posted signs for DETOUR ROUTES.
  • Drivers should also be alert to nightly LANE CLOSURES of the fast lanes (left lanes) on both the northbound and southbound Glenn Highway between Hiland Road and Artillery Road.
Project End Result

The Alaska Department of Transportation, in cooperation with Kiewit, is working to improve the Glenn Highway. Work will include adding a southbound lane to the Glenn Highway between the Artillery Road and Hiland Drive interchange, realigning the Glenn Highway to reduce the southbound grade south of the Eagle River Bridge, as well as constructing a new southbound bridge over Eagle River to accommodate the additional lane. Work will also include constructing a frontage road west of the mainline from the Artillery Road interchange to the Hiland Road interchange. This west side frontage road will be two-way from Artillery Road to the Eagle River Bridge and one-way from the Eagle River Bridge to the Hiland Road interchange.
