Phase II of the Seward Meridian Parkway Road Improvements project will upgrade and widen Seward Meridian Parkway from the Palmer-Wasilla Highway to Bogard Road and extend the road to Seldon Road. The roadway would be widened/constructed to the west (except at the Alcantra Armory) to accommodate four travel lanes. Work will also include a paved, separated pathway along the west side of Seward Meridian Parkway for bicyclists and pedestrians; lighting; and a new structure to replace the existing culvert at Cottonwood Creek. New traffic signals are proposed at the intersections of Seward Meridian Parkway with East Country Field Circle, East Meridian Park Loop/East Birchview Drive, Bogard Road, and Seldon Road.
This is the second phase of a larger project that proposed to improve Seward Meridian Parkway from Parks Highway to Seldon Road. Phase I, Parks Highway to Palmer-Wasilla Highway is complete. An Environmental Assessment for this larger project was prepared and completed with a Finding of No Significant impact (FONSI) on April 2, 2007.
The Mat-Su Borough has agreed to own and maintain the upgraded road upon completion of construction.
