Fairview Loop Rehabilitation Project

Project Scope

The State of Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities (DOT&PF) is working on a project to improve  Fairview Loop Road from the Top of the World Circle to its connection with Fireweed Road.  The project has recently been re-scoped to match the available funding. Two phases are currently being developed.

PHASE 1 consists of a pavement preservation or “1R” project between Top of the World Circle and Fireweed Road. Approximately 6.5 miles (Canter Place to Candywine Road) of Fairview Loop Road will be repaved, including the reconstruction of roughly 1.2 miles of the complete roadway.  Existing culverts will be replaced and the roadside drainage ditches will be improved  as needed along the length of the project.

PHASE 2 will construct a separated pathway from Top of the World Circle to Edlund Road and construct safety improvements at selected locations along Fairview Loop Road.  Intersections will be evaluated to determine those locations with the greatest potential benefit.  The scope of safety improvements will be based on an evaluation of impacts to right of way and utilities, intersection operational characteristics, expected safety benefits and the availability of project funding. Other safety improvements in addition to the intersections may also be considered, including guardrail and improved signage.
