Safe Routes To Schools Manual

The Safe Routes To Schools Manual is prepared annually by the Municipal Traffic Department. The purpose of the manual is to assist students that walk to school or to a bus stop in following the safest and best route.

Safe walking routes are vital for the students of Anchorage and Eagle River and each child should study the map that applies to them and utilize the recommended walking routes when necessary.

Parents and teachers alike should encourage students to utilize the recommended walking route, cross only at designated crossings, and become aware of traffic signals and other traffic controls. Click here for information on how to  download the manual or individual school walking route maps.

State Farm Intersection Safety Studies

The Municipality of Anchorage (MOA), the Alaska Department of Transportation, and the State Farm Mutual Insurance Companies have identified the intersections of Lake Otis Parkway at Tudor Road, New Seward Highway at Fireweed Lane, Old Seward Highway at Dimond Boulevard, New Seward Highway at 36th Avenue, and Northern Lights Boulevard at Boniface Parkway as intersections that have relatively poor safety records, and might benefit from intersection safety reviews.

The goals of the intersection safety reviews are to analyse the subject intersections, identify traffic safety problems (if any), develop strategic solutions to the identified problems, evaluate the technically feasible solutions, and recommend appropriate actions. The study method followed a systematic process to review physical, traffic, collision and conflict characteristics, and to generate and evaluate improvement options.
