I’ve been wondering if the Department of Transportation, with its very impressive budget, could squeeze out a few Ben Franklins to resurface the Indian Creek bridge, which tens of thousands of 18-wheelers, RVs and other vehicles cross every day. It is a mechanical and bone-rattling experience and could have been addressed two years ago.

There is not even a safety or courteous warning sign, so everyone new to the spectacular drive is caught unaware. For locals, it is a bizarre reminder of the fatalities that have occurred on that bridge. DOT’s casual maintenance of the high-profile Seward Highway is showing.
