Transportation Projects

Knik Arm Crossing Project

The Knik Arm Crossing Project would meet the current and projected transportation needs for both the Municipality of Anchorage and the Matanuska-Susitna Borough. The proposal is to construct a cost-affordable, vehicular toll bridge about 2 miles long, across Knik Arm to join the Port of Anchorage area and Port MacKenzie area. The purpose of this project is to fulfill the following needs:

  • An efficient link between the operations and infrastructure of the two ports;
  • An alternate north-south emergency response and disaster evacuation route; and
  • Transportation infrastructure for existing and projected population and economic growth.
