The Eklutna River Bridge at the Old Glenn Highway was closed to vehicular access due to severe deterioration, creating considerable access inconvenience to residents of the Thunderbird Falls neighborhood. R&M’s multi-discipline team of planners and designers are currently working on conceptual alternatives through the Context Sensitive Solutions policy to expedite the Eklutna River Bridge Replacement timeline to improve connectivity, mitigate congestion related to an incomplete transportation corridor network, relieve out-of-direction travel, and provide access to important community recreation areas in Chugach State Park.
