Project End Result
The Alaska Department of Transportation is working with QAP to preserve both Northern Lights Boulevard and Benson Boulevard. Upon completion, both roads will be repaved, there will be new signage and striping, the majority of problematic curb ramps will be upgraded to current ADA standards, and automated traffic recorders and signal system will be improved. This project is projected to be completed by September 2016.
