Beginning Tuesday, September 21 through the week of October 4, drivers should expect SOUTHBOUND LANE CLOSURES on the Eagle River Bridge for bridge rail replacement.
- Drivers should expect occasional SOUTHBOUND DOUBLE-LANE CLOSURES at night.
- Drivers should be aware of a concrete barrier in place and the southbound bridge will be reduced to two lanes during rush hour. This work will occur on both sides of the bridge.
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. This project is expected to be complete in summer 2021.
