Troopers plan boosted patrols for holiday period


by Your Alaska Link News Team

Alaska State Troopers are planning to boost patrols for the Fourth of July weekend period.

Troopers say the enhanced patrols began Wednesday and will continue through the holiday weekend.

Troopers say highway traffic is expected to be heavy on the Seward and Sterling highways, so the Alaska Bureau of Highway Patrol will be focusing patrols in those areas. Officers will be looking for aggressive and distracted driving.

Wildlife troopers will focus on fishing enforcement. Troopers say officers will put special emphasis on enforcing boating safety laws and looking for people operating boats under the influence.
