ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- The city says this summer will be another busy year for road construction in Anchorage. Some of the planned repairs will relieve congestion on roads and improve sidewalks.
"It's our construction season to get some of these projects done, from sometime middle of May to the middle of October," said Jerry Hansen with the city's Department of Project Management and Engineering.
Within that short time frame, the city will conduct dozens of construction projects -- projects that you can now find now on the city's Web site.
"I think this will be a little easier for the public to find the information," Hansen said.
The site will also list what upgrades will be done at each site and contact information for project managers.
One priority project, widening the intersection at Lake Otis Parkway and Tudor Road, is expected to start in the spring. The city says with the current traffic volumes it'll need to improve the roads, and this intersection is just one example of many.
