Categorized under the Community Transportation Program partnership, the Livengood Creek Bridge is slated for replacement in the STIP, with $2.8 million in construction work slated for FY13.
As another bridge replacement for a NHS-designed roadway, the Brotherhood Bridge and Separated Multi-Use Path to UAS, Stage I STIP project warranted funding of $21.5 million of design, right-of-way, and construction work in FY13 to replace the bridge, reconstruct the roadway, construct a new multi-use path, and reconstruct an existing equestrian path.
In the Petersburg area, the roadway and sidewalks on Haugen Drive from Nordic Drive to Eighth Street are identified in the STIP for reconstruction.
In the Mat-Su Borough, the STIP includes a project to rehabilitate a stretch of the Glenn Highway from King River, Milepost 66.5, to Cascade, Milepost 92, to preserve and extend the service life of the highway, to enhance safety, and to evaluate the need for passing and climbing lanes.
Also in the Mat-Su Borough, the STIP reflects a project to widen the Parks Highway to four lanes between Wasilla and the Big Lake Cutoff and to include a bridge at the Wasilla railroad crossing.
In Kodiak, the Kodiak ferry terminal and dock is listed for improvement as part of the existing STIP. The project is designed to reconstruct the Pier 1 dock facility, with $11.2 million slated in FY13 for construction and utilities work.

At Kake, some $400,000 is designed in the current STIP for design and right-of-way work in FY14 to rehabilitate the Silver Spike, Keku, and Boat Harbor Spur Roads from Church Street to Portage Bay Boat Harbor.
As evidenced above and across the pages of the 2012-2015 STIP, bridge improvement is a primary concern of both present-day transportation planners and Congress.
