The West Dimond Boulevard Upgrade – Jodhpur Street to Sand Lake Road Draft Design Study Report (DSR) has been distributed for review and public comment. As a result of the current funding limitations and identified need to expedite construction of proposed improvements between Sand Lake Road and Westpark Drive, the Municipality of Anchorage’s Public Works Department has elected to divide the project into two phases (see map below). Phase I improvements will extend from the Sand Lake intersection to approximately 850 feet west of the Westpark Drive intersection (Station 77+00). Phase I pedestrian facilities will not extend west of the Westpark Drive intersection. Phase II improvements will extend from Station 77+00 to Jodhpur Street. Final design and construction of Phase II will not advance until full construction funding becomes available. Dividing the project into two phases will allow construction of Phase I to be accelerated and commence in 2014.
Review comments for the entire alignment are welcome and will be addressed. However, particular attention should be focused on Phase I improvements. Send us your comments or bring them to the open house scheduled for Wednesday, August 28th, 2013.
