The Alaska Department of Transportation Has Projects Lined Up For This Year

Multiple projects are scheduled around the Kenai Peninsula

The Alaska Department of Transportation (ADOT) has multiple construction projects that are being built, or will begin on the Kenai Peninsula in 2023, with others in early planning stages.

David Post with ADOT said one of the biggest projects on the peninsula is in an important stage this year.

Post said this summer, ADOT will buy steel to build the bridge over Juneau Creek Canyon — the latest move in the Sterling Highway MP 45-60 project, commonly known as the Cooper Landing Bypass.

“I know that’s not something that’s necessarily exciting, because people aren’t really gonna see the impact of that,” he said. “But it’s something that we need to go ahead and do well in advance of our starting bridge construction the following summer.”

ADOT reconstructed the highway at the west end of the project, near Fuller Creek. This summer, they’ll start upgrading the existing highway on the east end, in Cooper Landing.

ADOT is in the very early stages of a project to improve traffic at the junction of the Sterling and Seward Highways, by Tern Lake.

Several smaller projects are planned across the peninsula this coming summer. They include the continuation of a rehabilitation project on the Seward Highway, mile 17 to 22.5, just south of Moose Pass, as well as several repaving efforts, including 10 miles of Cohoe Loop Road in Kasilof, Funny River Road in Soldotna and eight miles of the Seward Highway in Seward.
