The Knik Arm Crossing is a state of Alaska project to construct a 1.74-mile toll bridge over Cook Inlet’s Knik Arm, connecting Anchorage, Alaska’s largest city, with the Matanuska-Susitna Borough, Alaska’s fastest-growing region.
The bridge will create thousands of construction jobs and spur thousands more after project completion due to the increased economic activity. It will create better access to land for commercial, industrial and residential development.
The Crossing will reduce the cost of freight to Alaska’s Interior and North Slope by creating a more efficient route from the Port of Anchorage, through which the vast majority of Alaska’s goods pass to points north. The bridge will establish a second north-south connection between Anchorage and the Mat-Su Borough, which can be used as an alternate route during emergencies or as an evacuation route.
