Fairview Loop Rehabilitation Project
The State of Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities (DOT&PF) is working on a project to improve Fairview Loop from the Top of the World Circle to Candywine Road.
PHASE 1 - Consisting of a pavement preservation project between Canter Place and Candywine Road was constructed in summer 2015.
PHASE 2 - Pathway & Safety Improvements Project
Phase 2 will construct a separated multi-use pathway extending from Top of the World Circle to Fern Street and roadway safety improvements at the following locations along Fairview Loop Road: Marble Way, Hayfield Road / Lupine Lane, Culvert replacements at Cottonwood Creek & Cottonwood Slough, Lookout Drive, Well Site Road / Jackfish Road, Fern Street, Patty Drive / Chugach View Drive, Sue Lane/Togiak Avenue, and between Cotten Drive & Davis Road. The scope of the safety improvements vary with each location. For example, the planned improvements at Patty Drive will include lowering the grade between Patty Drive and Chugach View Drive to improve sight distance. Graphics on the documents page show all planned improvement locations. While funding is in place for all the Fairview Loop improvements, Phase 2 impacts utilities and requires acquisition of right-of-way which can take a couple of years to obtain. Additional safety improvements may be added based on available funding. These improvements may include minor realignment, grade changes, guardrail, drainage and improved signage. Construction is anticipated to begin in 2017 depending on several factors such as completion of right-of-way acquisition.
