The Alaska Department of Transportation, in cooperation with Exclusive Paving, is working at various locations throughout the Fairbanks and North Pole area. Work will include upgrading concrete barriers to current design standards on the Johansen Expressway, Mitchell Expressway, Steese Highway, and the Richardson Highway at North Pole. Work will occur during the 2020 and 2021 construction seasons. We will do our best to keep you informed of any project updates and appreciate your patience and cooperation during construction. This project is expected to be complete in August 2021.
