first_imgThree projects worth a total of $109 million are wrapping up for the season on the northernmost stretch of the Dalton Highway that was badly damaged by Sagavanirktok River flooding in spring 2015. One project was completed last week; another is expected to be done next week, and the third is scheduled for completion next year. (Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities)Work is wrapping on a project to rebuild the northernmost stretch of the Dalton Highway that was badly damaged two-and-a-half years ago by flooding from the overflowing Sagavanirktok River. Once that and two other road-improvement projects on that part of the Dalton are all complete, the state plans to pave the 52-mile stretch of the road.Listen nowThe contractor hired to reconstruct the 17-mile stretch of the Dalton Highway south of Deadhorse raised the level of the roadway by nearly five feet in areas damaged by flooding in the spring of 2015 by the Sagavanirktok River, also called the Sag River.“What happened was the Sag River overflowed its banks, after several days of icing. There were some very quick-warming temperatures, and some flooding that shut down the roadway,” Mike Lund, the State Department of Transportation’s construction manager, said.Lund said the project contractor, Anchorage-based Brice Incorporated, had to haul in some 2.4 million tons of gravel needed to build-up that stretch of Dalton. That’s enough to fill some 120,000 side-dumper trucks. It’s one of three projects worth a total of $109 million that are under way on the Dalton from Pump Station 2 to Deadhorse.“Eventually, over the next few years, we intend to actually pave this roadway,” Lund said in an interview this week.Lund says paving the last 52 miles of the Dalton would save the state millions of dollars that it regularly pays to resurface the roadway that’s pounded by some 200 semi-tractor trailer rigs headed to or from Prudhoe Bay every day.Sagavanirktok River flooding halted trucks en route to the North Slope oil complex several times in spring and summer 2015, creating long backups at points along the Dalton Highway. (KUAC file photo)“The biggest thing that these projects do over the short and long term is reduce maintenance and operations costs,” Lund said.Lund said the federal government pays for 91 percent of the cost of road projects like this. And he said the state tries to take advantage of that by including measures that will cut future road-maintenance costs.Lund said the gravel added to the roadbed will help insulate the permafrost on which the highway was built. The projects also call for a 4-inch layer of insulation to be buried at or near grade to further protect the permafrost from thawing.last_img read more
