Sen. Hoffman Thanks DOT for Swift Response to Bethel Highway Needs
BETHEL – Sen. Lyman Hoffman, D-Bethel, today thanked Marc Luiken, Commissioner of the Alaska Department Transportation and Public Facilities (DOT), for the Walker administration’s swift response to needed repairs on the Chief Eddie Hoffman Highway.
The DOT will provide temporary relief to the highway this fall – which has been damaged due to the loss of permafrost – using material and equipment mobilized for a project planned for next spring on the Bethel Airport apron.
“Earlier this year, I was informed that Governor Walker and his administration were planning a cabinet meeting in Bethel. I contacted the governor’s office and requested they inspect the Chief Eddie Hoffman Highway while they were there,” said Sen. Hoffman. “On behalf of the people of Bethel, I want to thank the Walker administration for their quick response in finding a temporary fix for the road. I look forward to working with them on a more permanent solution.”
