Brand new avenue reopens following repair work

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - Capitol Avenue is now open again.

    The byway between Willoughby Avenue and West Ninth Street reopened to vehicular and pedestrian traffic this week.

    As explained in a release from Juneau City Hall the road was rebuilt as a single lane, one-way street with a sidewalk due to the restricted width of the right-of-way. That means traffic is now only able to enter Capitol Avenue from Willoughby Avenue, and exit at Village Street or West 9th.

    The release advises citizens to watch for signs,  especially the “No Entry” signs placed at West 9th, as well as construction workers who will periodically be on site to complete minor tasks.

    The work also included installation of a new storm drain system with curb and gutter.
