Seward Highway safety

Anchorage has only one road leaving north and one south. The road to the south is the scenic but treacherous Seward, and then Sterling Highways. On the next Hometown, Alaska, we’ll hear about the plans to improve these routes at bottlenecks on Turnagain Arm and Cooper Landing. The big, expensive projects must balance many needs: for safety, for the environment, for scenery, and for people.
