Christmas Travel Outlook For Kenai Peninsula

first_imgBut traveling during the holidays doesn’t have to turn you into the Grinch. If you plan to venture out of the Kenai Peninsula visit 511.alaska.gov prior to embarking on the roadways to check road conditions and possible delays. With temperatures expected to remain below freezing through Christmas Day, Alaskan travelers are urged to prepare a simple winter safety kit for holiday road trips. Breke Hewitt with the Department of Transportation says driving conditions throughout the Kenai Peninsula for the holiday weekend are ‘fair with some slightly icy patches’: “Drive with your headlights on, give yourself plenty of time to safely get where you may be going for the holiday weekend.” AAA said in a report, that roughly 107.3 million Americans will journey 50 miles or more from home during December 23 through January 1, a 3.1 percent increase from a year earlier and the most ever recorded.

Stream Watch Started in 1994 by a group of concerned citizens and the Chugach National Forest, this volunteer driven program has grown from a grassroots collective of 10 to a volunteer movement of 180+ volunteers who are making a difference for rivers on Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula.
