Zoo Access: O'Malley Road Construction

Zoo Access: O'Malley Road Construction

O'Malley Road is the primary road visitors take to reach the Alaska Zoo. Construction and road widenening are beginning, Phase I of the project. While this phase will not reach the roadway directly in front of the zoo, visitors trying to access us by coming up O'Malley Road from the Seward Highway may experience delays or detours.

Here is the project information, with construction updates listed at:


NOTE: O'MALLEY ROAD FROM THE SEWARD HIGHWAY UP TO LAKE OTIS WILL BE CLOSED FROM JULY 5TH THROUGH 26TH. Please visit the construction update link above to see detour routes. The zoo will be open daily and we appreciate our visitors taking the extra time to come see us!
