After eight years of hard work, the five mile portion of the Seward Highway through Bird Creek and Indian is newly rehabilitated with fresh pavement and improved features! The project had a lot of different pieces and details. These included an extension of the bird-to-gird path, new left turn lanes, replacement of the bridge over Indian Creek, rehabilitation of the bridge over Bird Creek, two major creek relocations/fish passage culverts, and close coordination with the Alaska Railroad Corporation for culvert upgrades and trespass mitigation.
R&M was the design engineer for the project and provided public involvement, environmental support, design study report, H&H, PS&E, ROW support, and assistance during bidding and construction.
Check out the new and improved features next time you drive or bike through the area!
