The Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities' stated purpose is to extend the existing highway system that currently terminates near Manley Hot Springs, to the Yukon River near Tanana. The project would improve approximately 16.5 miles of existing road and unimproved trail and construct 19.34 miles of new road across undeveloped terrain to provide an all season link to the south bank of the Yukon River near Tanana, Alaska. The project consists of upgrading the last two miles of the existing Tofty Road, as well as an additional 14.5 miles of existing roads and trails that extend past the current terminus of Tofty Road (beginning at approximately mile post 15; the installation of a new bridge at Boulder Creek (#2297), and the construction of 19.34 miles of new road beginning at mile post 29.5. The proposed project also includes the expansion of two existing material sites, the creation of five new material sites, the installation of 3 new fish passage pipes, improvements to drainage, and vegetation clearing. The project terminus is near the Yukon River, above its ordinary high water level, approximately 6 miles upriver from the community of Tanana. No work would be done in the Yukon River.
