Seward Hwy MP 17-22.5 Rehabilitation

March 5, 2015
The Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities (DOT&PF), in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) will rehabilitate and improve the safety of 5.5 miles of the Seward Highway between the communities of Moose Pass and Seward, Alaska.  

75% Review Plan Set
New on the Website

DOT&PF recently reached a 75% completion level for the Seward Highway MP 17- 22.5 Rehabilitation project's design. Having a design that is 75% complete means project engineers have verified the roadway's traffic layout (lane widths, striping, access, etc.) and determined the space needed for the proposed improvements.  By confirming the project footprint, the 75% design will also facilitate construction impact discussions with adjacent landowners and utilities.  


You can view the 75% review plan set, also called the "plans in hand" set, in our project library.

What's Next
The next phase of the project is acquiring some property along the project corridor. We anticipate the right-of-way acquisition process to begin later this summer and to take approximately two years to complete.  Affected property owners will be contacted directly by the Department.


Construction will begin in 2018, pending the availability of funding and other factors.
