"The unofficial highway of Alaska"
Muldoon Road is one of the busier roads in Anchorage. Its rush hour occurs three times a day, for a total of 6 hours. The reason being the road leads to Tudor, and is the only way to get to parts of midtown and south Anchorage without going through the Merril Field and downtown areas. Its the center of one of our three transit centers for the public bus system, and just 5 minutes from the local hospitals. Muldoon has always been considered a rougher, lower socioeconomic area of Anchorage, and in many ways it still is. However, the city has worked in recent years to revitalize the area. Its become a center for retail with the addition of a Target and new Glenn Square shopping center (Kohls, Lowes, and other large retailers are expected to hop on soon). Plus a new middle school and elementary school. There are a lot of neighborhoods with families close to Muldoon, and given the bad reputation, police are everywhere, which is making the area more secure.
