10th Street (Egan to Glacier) closed for construction starting June 4

10th Street will be closed between Egan Drive and Glacier Avenue for major improvements beginning Tuesday, June 4 until project work is complete. Construction is anticipated to last through the summer.

During construction, all vehicle traffic and pedestrian walkways will be detoured around the project area.

Paving work on Montana Creek Road scheduled for May

Pavement repair work on Montana Creek Road between Back Loop Road and Arctic Circle is scheduled to take place before June 1. Work will include removal of pavement and placement of new asphalt pavement.

Because this work requires dry weather, it will be scheduled as weather allows and additional notice will be provided before work begins. Work will take place at night between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m. and is anticipated to take two nights.

Through traffic will be maintained during all work operations; however, please allow for traffic flaggers, pilot cars, and minor delays. Please stay alert to crews and equipment, follow all signs and guidance, and drive slowly and safety in the project area.

We appreciate your patience and cooperation and will make every effort to minimize inconvenience while this work is underway.

Open Houses at Marie Drake and Floyd Dryden buildings on May 7 and 9

The Juneau School District and the City and Borough of Juneau will hold open houses at the Marie Drake and Floyd Dryden buildings next week for community organizations and interested members of the public.

The Marie Drake and Floyd Dryden buildings will be returned to CBJ on July 1, 2024 and CBJ is currently accepting proposals from organizations interested in making use of these spaces to serve the Juneau community.

Although the primary focus of these open houses will be to help organizations submitting proposals understand the building facilities, both events are open to the public and all are welcome to attend.

JSD and CBJ staff will be on hand to give tours and answer questions about building facilities, zoning, parking, and the proposal process.

Marie Drake Open House: Tuesday, May 7, 4:30 – 6 p.m.

Floyd Dryden Open House: Thursday, May 9, 4:30 – 6 p.m.

For more information about the process or to submit a proposal, visit juneau.org/mdfduses or e-mail [email protected].

Learn about dock electrification at JCOS Sustainability Session on April 18

The Juneau Commission on Sustainability (JCOS) will host a Sustainability Session on Thursday, April 18 at 6:30 p.m. at the Mendenhall Valley Public Library.

The session is an opportunity for the community to learn more about the proposed project to provide renewable electrical power to Juneau’s two public cruise ship docks—a key step toward CBJ’s goal of reducing GHG emissions in Juneau.

CBJ Tourism Manager Alexandra Pierce and AEL&P Director of Energy Services Lori Sowa will present on renewable energy infrastructure and the goals and scope of this project, then take questions from the audience.

You can join in person at the library or remotely via Zoom at juneau.zoom.us/j/88069534778.

Can’t make it during the event? A recording will be available to watch online afterwards.

CBJ is also conducting a short online survey to gather community feedback on dock electrification. Take a few minutes to fill it out now, or join the session and then share your thoughts afterwards. The survey is open through May 10.

Learn more about the dock electrification project by reading the Cruise Ship Dock Electrification Study, or visit the Docks & Harbors project page.

For reminders and information about the Sustainability Session, RSVP to the Facebook event.
