Yukon Drive is scheduled for resurfacing and sidewalk upgrades in June and July of 2018. The Yukon Drive resurfacing project will run from the intersection of Tanana Loop near the Butrovich Building through campus to the bus pull-out at the Wood Center. In addition to upgrading the roadbed, the project will improve the bus stops and build sidewalks along the full length of the road.

During the construction project, access to the UA Museum of the North will be via Sheenjek Drive through the museum parking lot from the west.

Yukon Drive is currently closed to vehicular traffic from Sheenjek Drive to Chandalar Drive, cutting off access to the museum's main driveway. Visitors can access the museum by following Tanana Loop to the west end of Yukon Drive, which will remain open to Sheenjek Drive.

Pedestrian traffic will be allocated along Yukon Drive and accommodations for those needing it will be supplemented by the shuttle system. Traffic control signs will be in place to route traffic around the project and maintain access to all campus buildings. Project construction will be managed by DOT&PF working closely with UAF Facilities Services Division of Design and Construction. DDC will be making initial contact with building coordinators along Yukon Drive over the next couple of weeks.
