A long-awaited project to ease traffic flow through downtown Fairbanks is nearing completion, and business owners and drivers couldn’t be happier.
The project realigned Illinois Street, a major connection between College Road and downtown Fairbanks. The street
had an S-curve where accidents happened frequently, especially in icy weather. The road also lacked a sidewalk or bike
path in areas, so walkers or bikers had to use the shoulder instead of a safer path.
“The real big focus is on making it easier for people to travel around and enjoy,” said Alaska Department of Transportation Northern Region spokeswoman Meadow Bailey.
Fairbanks-based H C Contractors Inc., a member of Associated General Contractors of Alaska, is working the $24 million project. President Bill Hoople said his company got its start in 1993 doing site work including finish grading as well as work on building construction sites. But in recent years his company’s focus has turned more toward roads.
H C Contractors built the North Pole Interchange, a $20 million project, in 2009. That job spanned three construction
seasons, Bailey said, and H C handled it well.
