Fairview Highway Justice Project
"The Fairview neighborhood is currently in the bull'seye of the proposed "Highway to Highway" (H2H) expansion project in inner city Anchorage. Currently, the two highways that lead into Anchorage dissipate into arterial streets through the inner city. The proposal is to connect the two highways into one continuous highway. The H2H project is in the preliminary stages of conducting the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and selecting the reasonable routes. While many routes are being studied, the most likely route is the one that would follow the existing arterial connection and bisect the Fairview neighborhood.

NeighborWorks Anchorage owns and operates 10 affordable housing developments with 1,025 units throughout Anchorage, including Merrill Crossings Apartments, which are located in Fairview. The Merrill Crossing property comprises 83 units, over half of which house very low income residents. NeighborWorks Anchorage will utilize Justice Project grant funds to promote awareness and public involvement in the H2H project and the ultimate decision-making process for the final route. Through NeighborWorks Anchorage's existing resident council structure, staff will educate residents about the H2H process and the potential environmental and public health implications, including the potential impact to air and water quality. We will then facilitate a process to identify the residents' main concerns regarding the project and develop a position statement on their behalf. Finally, through our existing Community Leadership Institute, we will empower the residents by training them in public speaking and effective advocacy skills. To complement our resident organizing capacity, we will partner with local stakeholders to provide technical expertise on the project."
