Off-road vehicles damaging project

Posted: Monday, July 28, 2008

KENAI - Off-road vehicles are damaging newly contoured and hydro-seeded slopes along stretches of the Kalifornsky Beach Road project.

"We've had some isolated vandalism on the slopes," said Gary Walklin, the Alaska Department of Transportation's project manager. "Four-wheel and dirt bike riders are doing loops up the slopes after seeding. It's very destructive."

The 9.5-mile, $9 million project to rebuild, widen and pave two sections of the beach road includes about $500,000 worth of erosion and sediment control work.

"We've had some riders come through who are high-lining the slopes," he said, describing the arcing paths tires have carved into the hillsides.
