Beaver Loop Road improvement meeting slated

A public meeting on the proposed Beaver Loop Road improvement and pedestrian pathway project will take place Thursday from 6-8 p.m. at Kenai City Hall.

 

Representatives from the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities and consultants from Kinney Engineering will present their design plans to the public. Improvements being considered include widening the road’s shoulders, raising the roadway surface, constructing of a pathway off the road, replacing culverts and reconstructing ditches, according to a DOT&PF.

The 3.75 mile stretch of Beaver Loop Road connects the Kenai Spur Highway and Bridge Access Road and the rehabilitation project would affect more than 100 area properties. Some electric, water and sewer utilities along the road may have to be relocated, according to the project document.

Before any recommendations are made, the public will have an opportunity to provide input and feedback on the design at the meeting.

DOT is also accepting written comments during the environmental studies period and will need those turned in by June 13.
