Glenn Highway: Hiland to Artillery Capacity Improvements
The Glenn Highway serves more than 50,000 drivers a day. During peak hours, the Glenn’s northbound lanes can become congested with traffic, resulting in delays, driver frustration, and conditions that can lead to vehicle crashes.
The Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities (DOT&PF) plans long-range phased improvements to the north and southbound lanes the Glenn Highway between the Hiland Drive interchange to the Artillery Road interchange. This project intends to make upgrades that will improve driving conditions in the project area, which may require the widening or replacement of the bridges over Eagle River.
