PALMER, Alaska -- An open house Thursday evening in Palmer drew in a large crowd to discuss possible routes to improve traffic flow in and out of the city.
A citizens advisory group made up of about 20 community members presented their plans to alleviate congestion at the intersection of the Palmer-Wasilla and Glenn highways.
DOT is overseeing the project, but its initial "Palmer Couplet" plan to turn some streets into one-ways was met with a lot of opposition last summer.
The Department put the brakes on that idea and asked concerned residents to create an advisory committee to develop an alternative that most could agree on.
