Road Construction Projects in the Works

Published On: Nov 04 2013 11:52:04 PM AKST

Drivers in the interior will have to manage some construction projects next season.

Six sections of the Parks Highway between Anchorage and Fairbanks will see renovations.

Passing lanes will be built along a 140-mile stretch south of Nenana and a new overpass will be built at Broad Pass south of Cantwell.

13 miles of the Parks Highway between Denali Park and Healy will also be under construction.

In Fairbanks, the Johansen Expressway will be resurfaced and half of airport way will get new asphalt.

According to the Department of Transportation, drivers will likely face delays as projects go from planning to construction.
