If you’re going to be out and about around Anchorage this weekend, there are some road and ramp closures you should be aware of. 

Homer Drive is closed from 71st Avenue to 76th Avenue. Drivers should use Briarwood Street as a detour. Also, Brayton Drive is closed from Lore Road to 68th Avenue. As a detour, use Meadow Street.

The northbound Seward Highway on-ramp from Lore Road is closed. People living between Dowling Road and Abbott Road should plan to use the newly opened northbound Seward Highway on-ramp from Abbott Road as a detour.

These closures are expected to last a couple weeks.

Speed limits within the project corridor have been reduced to 55 miles per hour and traffic patterns will be modified as necessary. Drivers should follow all construction signs.

Median and shoulder work is being done along the New Seward Highway near the Dowling Road exit. The final configuration will accommodate six lanes of through traffic.

Work is being done in sections along the frontage roads, going from the south end to the north end along Brayton Drive and the north end to the south end on Homer Drive from Dimond Boulevard to Dowling Road; sections of the roads will be closed as work continues.
