This project incorporates Complete Street concepts and will include:
This concept considers how Minnie Street fits within the broader local street network. It looks at how local traffic connects between Minnie Street, Illinois Street, Phillips Field Road, College Road, Old Steese Highway, and downtown Fairbanks.
This concept seeks to improve the broader Fairbanks transportation network by providing a new connection between the Johansen Expressway and destinations east and south of Illinois Street. This concept considers both historical and new route options to identify potential improved connections between the Johansen Expressway and Illinois Street, Minnie Street, and downtown Fairbanks.
