Alaska DOT Looking for Solutions to Pesky Intersection

    Juneau, AK (KINY) - The Alaska Department of Transportation will be presenting some ideas for what to do to decrease traffic congestion the intersection at Riverside Drive and Stephen Richards Memorial Drive.

    It will be held at the Mendenhall Public Library from 5-7pm and the public are encouraged to join in the conversation on how to best address the area.

    Aurah Landau, the public information officer there told us what to expect.

    "It's a pretty gunked up intersection during high traffic times. DOT is looking at ways to potentially redesign the intersection to get better traffic flow."

    Landau said that they are really hoping for public input.

    "DOT's project staff and engineers will be there giving the public information about what the congestion looks like at the intersection and then go through some ideas. DOT would love to get ideas, comments, and observations from the public"
