DOT launches reconstruction website

The Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities has launched a website to keep the public updated on the Mill, Mission and Stedman Streets Reconstruction Project.

Visitors to the site can check the project’s status, review download documents, find contact information for the project team and more.

The project’s goal is to repair sidewalks, pavement and drainage through the downtown corridor. The DOT also hopes to relieve congestion at the intersection of Dock, Mission and Stedman streets with quote “traffic calming measures.”

According to the DOT, the next step in the project is to provide an environmental review, which should be completed by Fall of this year.
