The Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities is implementing a project to address traffic accidents, delays and other issues in midtown Anchorage. The Midtown Congestion Relief project will focus on the area stretching from 20th Avenue to Tudor Road on the Seward Highway corridor.
It’s still in its early stages and DOT is looking to receive input and suggestions from the general public.
The Seward highway acts as barrier between commercial and residential areas. There isn’t a lot of pedestrian and bicycle traffic since the intersections are not ideal or safe for them.
The DOT will be hosting more public discussions to give Alaskans the chance to provide input. They have also used a Social Pinpoint interactive map to allow people to leave their comments and feedback.
