According to the non-profit’s Executive Director Jackson Fox, there are two large projects they have scheduled. He says the largest project will be reconstructing McGrath Road, which is on the north-side of Farmers Loop. FAST Planning is also arranging a project on the University of Alaska Fairbanks campus. Where Tanana Loop, Alumni Drive, and Chandalar intersect, is being redesigned. The roads in front of Signers' Hall will also be repaved.

Fox says there are other smaller projects that will be worked on in 2020.

"1st and Lacey Street, restriping that intersection, reconfiguring the through lanes," said Fox. "At 10th Avenue and Lathrop Street over near Denali Elementary, we'll also be doing some lane configurations and restriping that intersection to make it safer and less confusing for the traveling public."
