Location: Anchorage, AK
High groundwater and poor soils caused failed storm drainpipes, heaving roadways, and increased maintenance efforts in this east Anchorage subdivision. To address these issues, CRW provided planning, surveying, and design for full reconstruction of 4,700 feet of local roadways within the Image/Reflection Drive area. Challenges included flat grades, steep driveways, and storm drain outfall constraints. In addition to a new insulated roadway section and culvert replacement for Reflection Lake Creek, the roadways and storm drain systems were upgraded to alleviate drainage and maintenance issues and the sidewalks are safer through upgrades to pedestrian and lighting facilities. Phase 1 construction was completed in 2021, and Phase 2 construction began in 2022 and is schedule for completion in 2023.
