ANCHORAGE- The once disputed moose barrier along Minnessota Drive will be going up any day now.

In the summer of 2013, Bay Shore residents were pretty vocal about not wanting the fence installed. They said it would effect their property values by cutting into their greenbelts.
  
The Department of Transportation says this area of Minnessota Drive averages eight moose vehicle collissions a year.
     
Officials say this fence could reduce the number of vehicle and moose accidents by about 50 percent.
