Sterling Highway Safety Meetings to Begin Today

Posted: July 22, 2013 at 7:36 am

The Alaska Department of  Transportation is seeking input from area residents on safety enhancements for the Sterling Highway between Soldotna and Sterling.

The stretch of highway is designated as one of four safety corridors statewide.

The highway was given that designation due to its history of higher than average occurrences of serious or fatal accidents.


DOT officials are inviting peninsula residents to stop by a mobile meeting in Soldotna or Sterling to share experiences and ideas with the project team.

The meeting will be held today  in Soldotna from 8:00am to Noon at Fred Meyer and from 2:00pm to 6:00pm at Safeway.

Meetings will also be held in Sterling on tomorrow  from 8:00am to Noon at the Sterling Post Office then from 2:00pm to 6:00pm at the Sterling Community Center.

    There was question about how to make the Sterling Highway safer. When I first arrived in Soldotna in 1990, there was a DOT project that acquired rights of way from Soldotna to Sterling. This project provided space for 4 lanes plus turn lanes. Why not dig that project out of the archives & complete that job.
