Lane closures on the Sterling Highway in Soldotna may be coming to an end as the DOT puts the finishing touches on the urban highway project. Traffic has been restricted over the last few weeks as work crews have been installing new, higher, lampposts and lights along the re-surfaced road and sidewalks.
The new posts are some ten feet higher than the old ones. According to Soldotna City Manager, Tom Boedeker, the state donated a few of the old shorter light poles to the city to be installed at the new Ski Hill Park. "The park will always be a day use facility and will close around 7:00pm, but in Alaska with it getting dark so early, those lights will be greatly appreciated," said Boedeker.
