This is in reference to Teresa McNulty's letter (Clarion, May 22) about traffic at the junction of the Seward and the Sterling highways.
I drive commercial trucks and buses through that intersection all year. I have never experienced the problem of a long wait.
Last summer there was road construction north of the intersection, which caused some delays, a fact of life during the summer in Alaska.
People need to check the DOT maps placed in newspapers telling of these road problems and plan accordingly.
I would almost say that Teresa had her traffic problem during the Fourth of July weekend, the one time of year that there is heavy traffic in and out of Seward. This takes planning ahead, not the expense of an intersection rebuild.
I think that the intersection is OK the way it is.
