Parnell Promoting Highway Safety

As the State Department of Transportation continues their study of highway corridors in our area, Governor Sean Parnell asked residents to play an active role in road safety…

 

Gov. Parnell: “This is a big construction season and I know I’ve seen the hold-ups out by Anchor Point and people having to wait, but the bottom line is it’ll result in safer travel for all of us. They coordinate with the Department of Public Safety. We’re putting more Troopers on the road as well, the Legislature joined me in funding more Troopers for the Peninsula and this area, so it’s that coordination of effort between DOT, Department of Public Safety, and Alaskan motorists just being careful, because lives are precious and it’s too easy to get hurt, so we’re asking Alaskans to take responsibility and we’re working to provide safer highways ourselves.”
