They will also be replacing the culvert at the East Fork Moose River with a bridge and install a pedestrian undercrossing for the Skyline Trail. The final portion of the project is from MP 58 to MP 79. Improvements will consist of resurfacing,widening shoulders, adding passing lanes and wildlife enhancement structures. The Department of Transportation will continue working on the Sterling Highway Rehabilitation project in different phases over the upcoming months. According to the DOT this includes clearing vegetation and improving the drainage, signage, and striping. Shannon McCarthy, DOT Spokeswoman: “We have the Sterling Highway shoulder widening from MP 97 TO MP 118. That includes widening the existing shoulders, and putting rumble strips, safety edge to shoulders, improving lighting, the approaches, and replacing guardrails and drainage as needed.” Another portion of the project will construct left-turn lanes and intersection lighting at Jim Dahler Road/Forest Lane intersection on the Highway. Motorists can get updates on road conditions by phoning 511 or looking online at the DOT&PF’s “navigator” site at www.alaskanavigator.org. Look out for reduced speed limits and workers and equipment on the roads and shoulders.
