The northbound Seward Highway On-Ramp from Lore Road is CLOSED. During this time, residents between Dowling Road and Abbott Road should plan to use the newly opened northbound Seward Highway On-Ramp from Abbott Road as a DETOUR route. Also, Lore Road is CLOSED from Sandlewood Place to Brayton Drive, and Brayton Drive is CLOSED from Lore Road to 72nd Avenue.
Beginning Friday, May 25, the northbound Dowling Road Off-Ramp from the Seward Highway will be CLOSED through mid-June for excavation work and ramp improvements. During this time, travelers should plan to utilize the northbound Tudor Road Off-Ramp, Tudor Road, the southbound Seward Highway and the Dowling Road Off-Ramp as a DETOUR route. In addition, please plan to follow construction signs at all times.
Following the completion of the Dowling Road Off-Ramp CLOSURE, the southbound on-ramp from Dowling Road to the Seward Highway will also be CLOSED soon after. During this time, please plan to follow signs for a DETOUR route to Lake Otis Parkway. Business access will be maintained during the CLOSURE. Please pay attention to future construction updates for additional notifications and CLOSURE dates.

The Alaska Department of Transportation, in cooperation with QAP, is working to expand the Seward Highway from Dimond Boulevard to Dowling Road, reconfigure highway ramps and frontage roads, extend Sandlewood Place, construct a new grade separation at 76th Avenue and build new box culvert crossings for Little Campbell Creek. This project is expected to be completed in June 2019.
