Ice on North Tongass Higway
By Deborah Hayden

AK DOT deserves much praise for plowing North Tongass Highway during and after the recent 16 inch snowfall. Now it would be great if the Department of Transportation would sand and de-ice the highway. It is a sheet ice on much of its surface. Many people have not put studded snow tires on their cars and trucks. It is very dangerous with these vehicles on the highway and no sand.

If anyone knows who to contact at AKDOT to request sand on the highway please publish that information. I searched the AKDOT website and could not find the correct contact.
