The draft Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) Study report is now available for public review and comment. The comment deadline is June 16, 2021.

In response to concerns about safety and the need for alternate driving routes in case of accidents at the intersection of Egan and Yandukin Drives in Juneau, Alaska, the Alaska Department of Transportation & Public Facilities (DOT&PF) is planning improvements for transportation users.

PROJECT SCOPE: 

DOT&PF is engaging the community of Juneau and analyzing crash history and improvement options to figure out “right-sized” improvements for the Egan/Yandukin intersection. DOT&PF is using a Planning and Environmental Linkages process to define issues associated with the intersection of Egan and Yandukin Drives, and to develop potential solutions to enhance the safety, connectivity, and reliability of the corridor as a whole. Previous traffic studies and analyses of improvements will be incorporated into the current effort.

Potential intersection improvements would address safety concerns while also operating within constraints posed by land ownership, environmental impacts, and funding availability.

PROJECT STATUS: 

DOT&PF has completed traffic studies and crash analyses for the intersection. The Department is defining goals for area improvements, developing improvement options, and collaborating with the community of Juneau to select the best alternative(s).

DOT&PF has applied for funding for safety enhancements that can be implemented relatively quickly, and it continues to develop other solutions to improve safety and connectivity in the area.

Agency coordination and public involvement are underway. Stakeholder meetings, a public open house, and a comment period were held in winter 2019/2020. Agency and stakeholder coordination occurred in spring and summer 2020 and will continue throughout the project.

DOT&PF held a virtual public meeting about the Egan Yandukin Intersection Improvements Project on October 14, 2020 from 5:30-7:30 P.M. See the prerecorded presentation and more information at the online open house.

The draft Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) Study report is now available for public review and comment. The comment deadline is June 16, 2021.
