FAIRBANKS- A Fairbanks street project has forced a handful of businesses to relocate.
   
The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner (http://bit.ly/128TPca) reports Sicily's Pizza is the latest Third Street retailer to change locations in anticipation of a road widening project.
   
Three other businesses near the Gavora (guh-VOR'-a) Mall have moved and reopened at new locations and two have closed but apparently not reopened.
   
The Alaska Department of Transportation is negotiating with one last business - a Holiday Station that includes gasoline pumps and a convenience store.
   
DOT spokeswoman Meadow Bailey says the street widening requires only the area in front of the store where gas pumps are located and that's complicating the negotiations.
   
Bailey says by email that construction is projected for 2016 but depends on acquiring property and relocating utilities.
