Installation begins Aug. 8; rumble strips will narrow sections of the driving lane by a couple inches
The Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities (ADOT&PF), with contractor Specialized Pavement Markings Inc., will begin rumble strip installation Saturday, Aug. 8, on the Richardson Highway from Glennallen to just south of Fort Greely. Surveying will take place today through Saturday, Aug. 1.
This project will install edgeline rumble strips along various sections of the highway from Mile 115 through Mile 257 and will also include some asphalt repair. During the project, drivers can expect daytime delays with flagging and pilot car operations. Work is set to wrap up by the end of August.
Please note: This project will permanently narrow approximately 80 miles of the highway between Glennallen and Fort Greely as the rumble strips will extend a couple inches into the driving lane.
