ANCHORAGE - The Port of Anchorage reports traffic is increasing, after the slump in 2009.
Deputy Director Steve Ribuffo says this year is a marked turnaround. The port expects more than 4 million tons of cargo to arrive with vehicles, cargo containers and shipments of jet fuel all up.
Port officials told KTUU they're seeing the effects of weekly cruise ship visits and expect more next year to bring additional tourists to downtown Anchorage.
