This two-year project will resurface and improve Glacier Creek Highway from Glacier Highway Access Road (near the old Walmart) to the intersection with Vanderbilt Road as you are traveling to Twin Lakes.
Renninger Street will be closed at Glacier Highway from Tuesday, July 12, at 7:00 am, through Tuesday, July 26, for construction of a new roundabout. Access to Renninger Street will be provided by detour route through Northwood Drive. Expect new traffic patterns on Glacier Highway near the old Walmart Building. Traffic through the work zone will be controlled by flaggers during daytime hours. Please drive carefully.

The signing and traffic marking design sheet for the Vanderbilt Hill Road and Glacier Highway intersection is available for viewing and download below. The permanent features, yet to be installed for this area include:
The initial design removed the left turn lane onto Vanderbilt Hill Road from Old Glacier Highway to install a raised median curb with refuge for crossers and to warn vehicular traffic of crossing bicyclists. Based on recent public comments on this design, the State of Alaska Department of Transportation will remove the planned concrete median and permanently reinstall the left turn acceleration lane at the Vanderbilt Hill Road/Glacier Highway intersection. When weather conditions allow, the painted traffic markings will be installed per the striping plan. The crosswalk ladder and rectangle rapid flashing beacon (RRFB) will be installed in the 2022 construction season.
We appreciate your feedback and take these into consideration in our discussions at the State of Alaska Department of Transportation. An update will be emailed and posted here as design changes occur.
