What You Need to Know
- Be alert to equipment in the roadway with oversize loads on Tofty Road and the Elliott Highway, as well as muddy road conditions. Please give additional distance when following another vehicle and exercise caution when passing.
Over the course of the summer, be alert to increased truck traffic on Tofty Road and the Elliott Highway, from Livengood to Manley Hot Springs.
Haul trucks and off-road dump trucks will be in constant use for the duration of the project. If possible, avoid using the road where there is active construction. If use of the Tofty Road / Tanana Extension Road is unavoidable, please use extreme caution as it is a single-lane road with limited view.
No road closures are anticipated with this project. Access to existing roads and trails within the project area will remain open through the duration of construction, though there will be no access to the new road being constructed.
Expect minor construction work on Tofty Road.
Project End Result
