Sen. Peter Micciche was on South Miller Loop on his hands and knees measuring the ruts in the road on Wednesday morning after appearing on the Must Read Alaska Show. He’s going to make a case to the Department of Transportation to do some repairs on the road before winter. Nikiski, on the Kenai Peninsula, has a lot of bad roads, but those living in the South Miller Loop road area say it’s a “death trap.”
Micciche had received a complaint from someone in Nikiski, and so went out to see the problem with his own eyes — and took a measuring tape.
Last week, Micciche posted on Facebook that if DOT didn’t remove derelict cars from the side of the the Seward Highway he was going to go out there and haul them away himself. The cars were removed within 24 hours, and Micciche posted his profuse thanks to DOT on Facebook.
He’s not in campaign mode — Micciche is not running for reelection to the Alaska Senate.
