Parnell, Sean. “Governor Announces New Seward Hwy. Safety Plan.” YouTube. YouTube, 19 Feb. 2013. Web. 27 Feb. 2013. <;.


This is a press announcement by Gov Sean Parnell and his administration, detailing the past and future efforts of the state to minimize the danger along the Seward Highway and other Alaska Safety Corridors. He supports his claim by offering examples of various planned and completed projects in each of the plans three components: Enforcement, Education, and Engineering. Parnell called upon three other experts, Public Safety Commissioner Joe Masters, Transportation Commissioner Pat Kemp, and DOT Consultant Steve Horn, to provide details and back him up. Their purpose was to document the efforts that they’ve taken and show that they are good administrators

Included are many possibilities for improvements. I could pick any one of these solutions and work on my own improvements from there. For instance, I think some improved public education in Girdwood would be an excellent topic. Perhaps I could propose a message board on the way out of Girdwood that displays current weather conditions and advisories, similar to the one near Potter’s Marsh. I found that this wasn’t a very in depth source however. These are politicians at a press conference, trying to prove something to the public. There aren’t any real technical details and it’s full of empty words. But it’s a good starting place for ideas, and I can fill out the details for each project from different sources.
