Alakanuk set for road improvement
Alakanuk is receiving the money to pave three miles of dirt roads in the village, according to KYUK. A U.S. Department of Transportation grant will fund $2.2 million of the $5.2 million project.
According to DOT, the repairs will enhance mobility and improve the quality of life in the village by making drainage improvements. Paving the roads would reduce dust and eliminate a significant source of air pollution that coats drying fish.
