Letter: State should halt 'U-Med’ road through valued trails, wetlands

I have lived in Midtown Anchorage for more than 30 years, and, for the life of me, I cannot understand the continued momentum on this northern road access to the recently contrived “U-Med District.” More accurately, it is an Anchorage bypass that will affect Class A wetlands, cut through an area of valued multiuse trails and add high speed traffic (maybe 10 percent of Anchorage drivers seem to observe posted speed limits) to a university campus. I can only hope the Legislature will stop this high-dollar project at a time when there is not even adequate funding for public education.
