Seventy-five years ago, East Anchorage was mostly spruce forest. Anchorage pioneer homesteader Arnold L. Muldoon backpacked building materials along a muddy trail that became Muldoon Road. He put up a log cabin in the winter of 1940-1941 and tried his hand at farming. Read the story of how Muldoon Road got its name!

√Muldoon Farmers Market – Saturdays 9-2 at Begich Middle School June 27 through September 26, 2015. The Muldoon Farmers Market is a volunteer-run, community-based, not-for-profit effort to create a quality farmers market by the mountains in East Anchorage, Alaska. The organizers are volunteers from the Northeast, Russian Jack and Scenic Foothills community councils who saw a need for a place to buy Alaska grown, caught, and made produce, food, arts and crafts in Muldoon.
√ Channelizing Muldoon Road – Muldoon Road has a higher crash rate than other similar roads in Alaska. The safety improvements are to benefit pedestrians, bicyclists and automobiles. The project is to reduce the number of left-turning, rear-end, and head-on collisions in project area. Safe Access is Good for Business document explains important safety impacts of carefully controlling and managing access along roadways. Construction – Summer 2015.
