- Beginning the week of Monday, April 6, crews will shut down operation of the Whittier Street traffic signal. Please note this work is weather dependent and may be delayed.
Initially the Whittier Street signal will be in “flashing mode” indicating motorists traveling inbound and outbound on Egan Drive to use caution, and motorists on Whittier Street to stop and then proceed with caution through the intersection.
Once traffic control devices are in place, the signal will be non-operational through September.
Traffic controls will be in place on Egan Drive between 12th Street and Willoughby Avenue reducing traffic lanes to one lane in each direction.
Left turns will be restricted on-to or off-of Egan Drive after 10th Street to Willoughby Avenue to ensure the best possible flow of traffic through the work zone.
Pedestrian access will be maintained on the mountainside of Egan Drive.
Additional traffic restrictions will be implemented soon to restrict left turns after 10th Street to Ferry Way. Updates regarding those changes will be provided as soon as possible.
- Drivers should expect DELAYS
- Please follow NEW TRAFFIC PATTERNS and posted DETOURS.

The Alaska Department of Transportation, in cooperation with SECON, will be working to install new pavement, improve pedestrian and bike paths, widen traffic lanes, repair retaining walls and culverts, replace aging storm drainage systems, and rehabilitate the Gold Creek Bridge. This is a multi-year project.
