This project to improve the Sterling Highway has been in the works for a long time....sounds like they may be getting ready to pull the trigger on it, though:
I'm very concerned with the proposed "Juneau Creek Alternative"....which, other than doing nothing, has the lowest-estimated cost of the various routes, so obviously the state would be looking hardest at that one. It would however cut across the Resurrection Pass Trail near Juneau Falls, as well as the Mystery Creek Wilderness Area. Anyone who has spent time up there knows it is one of the most beautiful, peaceful, and easily accessible hiking spots on the Kenai Peninsula....I for one, do not care to see Russian River-bound traffic or "the longest single-span bridge in Alaska" going straight through there.
Public comment period ends May 26, 2015. I strongly urge anyone with an interest in the matter to make a statement.
