Brett Nelson with Alaska Department of Transportation & Public Facilities states that the project purpose is to extend the service life and improve the safety of two sections of the Richardson Highway. Work being purposed includes to rehabilitate the Richardson Highway between mileposts 138 & 148 by repaving the road, fixing sections of damaged embankment, grading drainage ditches, replacing failing culverts, resurfacing Sourdough Creek Bridge and replacing bridge approach and transition guard rails. Additionally, a portion of roadway at milepost 134 would be realigned towards the east, away from an eroding riverbank bluff. This portion of the project would occur in three phases necessary to thaw and drain the permafrost (Phase I), accelerate and consolidate settlement (Phase II), and construct and pave the new road (Phase III). The work for both the milepost 138 to 148 rehabilitation and milepost 134 realignment is scheduled to take place congruently. All work would be performed in accordance with the enclosed plan (sheets 1-6), dated March 2020. The project site is located within Section 23, T. #7 N., R. 1 W., Copper River Meridian; Latitude 62.374º N., Longitude -145.365º W.; near Glenallen, Alaska.
