I am so glad that we have a group of residents looking at the future of our highway and roads. “It will never happen here” is the illusion we live under, but highway noise and traffic has happened almost everywhere and most feel they have no control or voice in how it occurs. We do many things differently here and we can have a voice in keeping our roads safe and quieter. Thank you SSH (Safe Haines Highways) for doing the research to show us what the truck traffic would be like and beginning this public discussion. I hope that town residents, living away from the highway, will be able to understand the impact on highway residents and support us,
