2016 Tesimonials

Attendees submitted the following comments about the Transportation Fair at the event.
"Very good presentation, very knowledgeable. Thanks!"
"The fair was awesome! I wish I knew about it earlier. The food was awesome as well. Hope to see this expand!"
"This fair is an excellent use of state money. Thanks." 
"Thank you for again providing a convenient way for the public to learn of the many transportation related issues and projects in South Central Alaska. As usual, I learned about projects that I hadn’t been aware of and now have current contacts. Items about which I want to continue to receive updated information. Thank you, too, for having the fire department there to demonstrate child safety equipment. For the last year I had a question about a booster seat that I didn’t take the time to stop at a station to get an answer. The fire personnel at your event were able to quickly answer my question and demonstrate the use of the particular booster seat about which I had a concern. Thank you to Quantum Spatial for providing the handy bags. It made it much easier to carry the information sheets that I gathered during the event. I’m looking forward to this event next year."
