Mat-Su River August 24, 2016

Workers on Tuesday afternoon were piling rock next to the highway but the plan is to lay the trench on the river side of the Matanuska Electric Association power poles, officials say. As of late afternoon, crews lacked permission to dig from a private landowner at the start of the trench; the rest of the project falls on Matanuska-Susitna Borough land.
