Beaver Loop Road

Jay Barrett/KDLL

This summer’s mild weather has seen good progress on several road projects in the Central Peninsula, and the long days and short nights have allowed two projects to commence work on a 24-hour-a-day basis.
Shoulder widening on the Sterling Highway north of Kasilof is one of those. It has flaggers and at times pilot cars controlling traffic. The Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities wants you to keep an eye out for the hydro-seeding vehicle along the route between mileposts 97 and 118, and for the many moose spotted in the area.

The Kenai city council approved another small step forward for the city’s long awaited bluff stabilization project at its meeting Wednesday. The council approved spending $1 million in support of the pre-construction engineering and design phase of the project.

A dedicated multi-use path is in the very early works for Beaver Loop road in Kenai. The local biking group that recently got the cities of Kenai and Soldotna some recognition for being bike-friendly, is now working on a grant through the state Department of Transportation and Public Facilities.
