Youth Employed in Parks trail crew is set to start work on Phase 1 of the Chugach Foothills Connector Monday, June 13. We plan on serving lunch to the teens and crew chiefs (about 30 people). So far we have a donation of cheese, cookies, veggie tray, apple juice and someone to help serve. Still looking for assorted lunch meats, chips, and beverages. If anyone would like to contribute to lunch, you can drop items off at 8060 Resurrection after 6:00 pm on Sunday or on Monday a.m. Thanks in advance.
The work party will be June 25th from 9 am-12:00pm, with a ribbon cutting party to follow. It is really important that we have a nice showing for this ribbon cutting. We’ll congregate at the end of Tikishla drive. I’m asking folks to bring your own camp chair. Michele has offered her grill for the hotdogs.
PEDESTRIAN PATHWAY CLOSURE: The pedestrian tunnel under Muldoon Road is CLOSED long-term, until construction of a new tunnel is complete. Pedestrians will need to follow the temporary path to Golden Bear Drive (Tikahtnu entrance), cross Muldoon Road at the signal, and follow the path back to the east side of Muldoon Road.
Expect new traffic patterns on the northbound Glenn Highway Off-ramp at Muldoon Road where a new temporary signal and intersection is in place. All traffic exiting the northbound Glenn Highway onto Muldoon will use the old southbound Muldoon Road Off-ramp and either turn left or right at the new signal when they reach Muldoon Road.
Expect intermittent night work with LANE RESTRICTIONS and flagging operations from 9:00 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. Monday through Saturday and be alert to flagging operations, shoulder work and trucks entering and exiting the roadway within the project area.
