You may have read the exciting news earlier this week in the Alaska Dispatch News about how a section of the Seward Highway near Portage will be getting a pedestrian pathway! We applaud the Chugach National Forest for their dedication and effort to make this happen in conjunction with DOT’s other planned improvements to the Seward Highway. You can read more about the project from the ADN: http://www.adn.com/alaska-news/2016/08/07/a-busy-stretch-of-the-seward-highway-might-be-getting-much-more-pedestrian-friendly/
In addition, today’s paper included a Letter to the Editor cheering the decision, and commenting on how this project will contribute to the Iditarod National Historic Trail and the goal to have a complete Southern Trek from Seward to Girdwood! http://www.adn.com/opinions/letters/2016/08/10/readers-write-letters-to-the-editor-aug-10-2016/ We love seeing the public voice their support for the Iditarod NHT!
