Welcome to the East 40th Avenue-Lake Otis to Dale Project Website
The Municipality of Anchorage (MOA) is initiating the 40th Avenue East Extension project. The project will extend 40th Avenue from Lake Otis Parkway to Piper Street and upgrade 40th Avenue from Piper Street to Dale Street.
This project represents the highest priority recommendation of the Tudor Area Traffic Calming Study, which was a collaborative effort between area residents, Providence Alaska Medical Center, the MOA Traffic Department, and DOWL HKM. The 40th Avenue extension will increase connectivity through the area, relieve pressure on 42nd Avenue, and decrease U-Med traffic congestion at the Tudor Road/Piper Street and Providence Drive/Piper Street intersections.
**NEW** There has been a change in design plans for the East 40th Avenue Extension project. The project team reviewed all of the comments that were submitted regarding a diverter on 42nd Avenue. After much consideration, the project team has decided not to include a diverter at either 42nd Avenue and Folker Street or 42nd Avenue and Wright Street in the construction plans for 2009. The team will wait until the East 40th Avenue extension is constructed, study traffic in the area, and then determine if there is a need for a diverter or further traffic calming on 42nd Avenue, as suggested in many of your comments. Thank you for your input on this project.
The MOA strives to involve the public in decisions that affect our community whenever possible. For this project, there are three levels of project participation we are requesting: collaboration, consultation and information sharing.
Collaboration—we anticipate a partnership with you in each aspect of the decision making process in matters related to landscaping, traffic calming and parking.
Consultation—we appreciate extensive feedback on analysis, alternatives and decisions related to sidewalks, trails, lighting, drainage and utilities.
Information sharing—technical issues, such as the number of lanes required, lane widths, and other engineering and design issues, are based on technical analysis which will be shared with you, but which are not subject to change.
