This project is a priority for the Spenard Community Council, surrounding facilities, and the adjacent multi‐family and residential neighborhoods.

The Municipality of Anchorage (MOA) is planning to upgrade Lois Drive (from West 32nd Avenue to Benson Boulevard, see map below) and West 32nd Avenue (from Lois Drive to Minnesota Drive) to improve non-motorized connectivity by constructing a new roadway. Improvements may include:

  • New road foundation
  • New asphalt pavement
  • New storm drain system
  • New non-motorized transportation facilities
  • Improved street lighting

The MOA has contracted with CRW Engineering Group, LLC to provide preliminary engineering and design services. The project is funded through the Design Study Report (DSR) phase through local road bonds. Additional funding will be necessary for design and pre‐construction tasks. The  earliest  construction  could  occur  is  in  2023  if  funding  becomes  available.
