Project End Result

The Alaska Department of Transportation is working with Kiewit Infrastructure West Co. to widen the Glenn Highway between Hiland Drive and Artillery Road. When the Glenn Highway Capacity Improvements project is complete, three lanes of the Glenn Highway will continue from Hiland Drive past the Artillary ramp. This project will only include the North Bound lane, which will place a new three lane bridge over Eagle River and convert the existing highway into a frontage road connecting Hiland with South Eagle River. This project is expected to be complete by December 2015.
