Cost and Funding
The ARRC anticipates the construction will occur in four phases starting in 2010:
- Tanana River crossing at Salcha
- Moose Creek to Salcha
- Salcha Crossing to Donnelley segment
- Donnelley to Delta Junction
Funding for the first stage—the Tanana River crossing—is supported, in part, by a Federal appropriation to the U.S. Army to facilitate access to training areas on the west side of the Tanana River. Construction of phases two, three, and four is subject to the ARRC obtaining additional funding through Federal appropriations, revenue bonds, or additional sources.
