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.
Guardrails will be installed in the project area on Friday, November 18, 2022, through Saturday, November 19, 2022. This is weather permitting and subject to change.
The Lemon Creek project is scheduled to shut down for the winter after guardrail installation is complete. Construction season spring startup is planned for May 2023 to complete the Anka Street Intersection. Project completion is estimated to be July 2023.

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.
