Construction on the project started winter 2018. By the end of December the material placement was completed to Mile 2.10; grubbing was completed to Mile 2.15; and the right of way clearing done up to Mile 2.23. The winter freeze up was late for 2018, which initially suspended the clearing operations in November. Overall, the project contract completion is on schedule for December 2020. Updates and project actions can be found at: https://www.kpb.us/rds-service…/north-road-extension-project Work is anticipated to continue as weather permits; frozen ground is a must during this phase of construction. To date, the clearing operations are now beyond the Leif’s Creek Bridge at mile 4. The start of work is dependent on the NRE material placement reaching beyond mile 4.18, which is expected to take place June 2019. The contractor re-mobilized equipment for the New Year to resume the clearing operations on January 3, 2019. D&L Construction has the contract to construct the North Road Extension (NRE) 8.1 miles from the current terminus – just past Captain Cook State Recreation Area – to Warmwood Drive (just beyond Otter Creek Bridge). Total project cost is $5,663,801 that includes federal and state grants as well as 20 percent match requirement that the borough met with in-kind contributions that far exceeded the match requirement, according to the borough.
