I went down to the DOT yesterday, here is some of what I learned.

The current Department of Transportation plan for the Fred Meyer Intersection is to hire a consultant to draw up some options which would then be presented for public comment in 2017.

I'm glad the DOT is working on it. The money for the planning is all federal, as will be the vast majority for any construction. I am troubled that the design isn't in house or even necessarily in state. I am going to look into that more after the holidays.

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Happy New Year!

The design should be in house and in state. Thanks for working on this!

Sounds like the Governors Budget is going in the opposite direction?

If it went out to bid the State I believe is obligated to hire an Alaska firm if they placed a bid for the job but it depends how it was written up and how it was weighed. Just find a procurement officer you can trust that has worked for the State doing procurement for a longtime and they can sight Statues, Policy and Procedures.

There are several reasons it's not being done in house. Design engineering staff have been greatly reduced over the past 20 years because state pay levels are well below what private firms are paying, and most of the engineers that used to design highway projects have retired. The reduction in State pay and benefit packages have made it hard to replace staff in fields like engineering and IT. If you want to recruit and retain good public servants you have to pay them well and stop attacking them for doing their jobs.

Nothing short of an overpass would fix this problem Justin V. Parish the state WASTED lots of money on this intersection a few years ago and it did NOTHING to improve the saftey for making left hand turns.
