Diane Powell from the Alaska Dept. of Transportation and Public Facilities will be at the Retail Committee meeting of the Chamber of Commerce, along with one of the engineers for the Main Street project and Karl Hagerman from the city public works department.
The meeting will be held Thursday, May 10 at 8:30 am at the Chamber of Commerce conference room.
According to the Chamber, ADOT-PF is flying down for this meeting as they need to get signed easements from all of the affected businesses and want to give an update on the proposed project.
If you are a shop owner who is going to be affected by the main street project you should attend this meeting, according to the Chamber. Construction is expected to get underway in late August or early Sept. following the canning season in Petersburg.
