Matanuska-Susitna Borough

Trunk Road Extension South Nearly Complete

Mat-Su | Patty Sullivan | Thursday, July 27, 2017

Many new homes near scenic Machetanz Elementary will soon have a higher capacity direct road for access. The new Trunk Road Extension South will connect subdivisions south of the Parks Highway. The 1.5 mile project will eliminate an at-grade crossing with the railroad with the installation of a new bridge, improving safety for the area as well. The new road will remove busy school traffic from congested subdivision roads. 

A ribbon cutting is planned for Aug. 11, at 11:30 am. at the railroad bridge.

Watch the aerial video of the project from its beginning here. Paving is nearly complete. Video and music by Borough Media Specialist Stefan Hinman.
