Safety before bridges

Posted: Wednesday, April 26, 2006

The most recent Statewide Transportation Improvement Plan (STIP 2006-08) is now being considered by the Legislature. Plans to widen and resurface about 16 miles of Kalifornsky Beach Road are included.

Unfortunately, many of the plans will likely not be funded because funding for new construction of two bridges and the Juneau road extension are so costly. It seems to me that new construction should be limited to make certain that construction to improve safety and regular maintenance are fully funded.
