S. Big Lake Road Realignment Access Management Plan with Figures (08-12-2013)

Planning Commission Resolution #13-25 - Access Management Plan 




The Matanuska-Susitna Borough (MSB), Public Works Department, and HDR Alaska, Inc. are working on the South Big Lake Road Realignment project.  The objective of this project is to construct a new road alignment for safety and mobility.  Improvements have been identified and all right-of-way easements have been acquired from private land owners. 

The project starts at the intersection of Burma Road and Susitna Parkway and extends northeastwards where it connects to South Big Lake Road near Jade Lane. The project is approximately 2.5 miles long. A draft access management plan has been developed to determine where road and driveway intersections will be located throughout the project.  HDR Alaska has developed the plans for construction to begin in 2013. The road is expected to open to the public in late 2014 or early 2015. If you have any questions about construction, please contact Mike Campfield, MSB Environmental Engineer, at 907-745-9811.
