Kinross trucking plan needs a thorough impact study

  • Updated

To the editor: The Kinross trucking plan must not be allowed to proceed without a thorough impact study. As a nearly 45-year resident, driving the highways between Delta Junction and Fairbanks, I have shuttled family, school students and neighbors year-round in various vehicles, including school vans.

Challenges now include roads obstructed/interrupted by construction, ice, resuspended snow, school bus stops, drivers over the line, drivers passing on double yellow, drivers crosswise in the road, fuel tankers and long military convoys. Add this to cautions when rounding curves and 65 mph speed limits.
