Midtown Congestion Relief
DOWL was hired by the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities to complete a Planning and Environmental Linkages Study for Midtown Anchorage. This study focused on an area surrounding the Seward Highway corridor from the Tudor Road interchange to approximately the 20th Avenue intersection. This area contains some of the busiest and highest crash incidence intersections in the state. It is estimated that the congestion at 36th Avenue creates approximately 250 driver hours of delay every weekday afternoon. Traffic along the Seward Highway is expected to roughly double in the next 20 to 30 years and congestion in the area will increase dramatically without significant improvements.
