This is a collaborative effort between three agencies: the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities, the Alaska Department of Natural Resources (Division of Parks and Outdoor Recreation), and the Municipality of Anchorage.
The past preliminary programming for this proposed project identified three alternatives and based on agency and public comment, narrowed the focus to one preferred alternative. As the planning effort advanced to the Environmental Assessment (EA), the environmental and land acquisition challenges for the project led the Department of Transportation and Public Facilities (DOT&PF) to conclude in 2007 that the no-build alternative would be selected under National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) guidlines. The project remains on the Anchorage Metropolitan Area Transportation Solutions (AMATS) project list, project no. 701
Project Goal: Construct and improve access points to the Greenbelt, and construct a multi-use trail between the Eagle River Campground at the Glenn Highway and the Eagle River Nature Center at Mile 12 of the Eagle River Road.
