Revilla Road Closure
By Heather Muench
December 10, 2007
On Saturday afternoon on my usual trip out the Rivilla Road,
I noticed a "road closed" sign. The road was clear
with a little snow at the edge. It was in far better shape than
the few days after the beginning of the cold weather. I saw
numerous cars going in both directions. There were folks out
cutting wood, walking dogs, hauling snowmobiles and getting Christmas
trees. About a mile after the end of the pavement , there was
an Alaska State Trooper stopping cars. He told me the DOT had
closed the road and he had been sent out to enforce the closure.
We were on dry gravel. I asked if I could park and walk my
dogs. He once again said the road was closed.
There was no reason for the road to be closed and it is asinine
for the DOT to have done so. It was a ridiculous waste of State
Trooper time and wrecking a pleasent afternoon for my folks.
