The Alaska Department of Transportation has several projects in the Southern Peninsula on the drawing boards. Some of them are closer to initiation than others.
    For example, preliminary work to build a new bridge over the Anchor River is already underway, while funding may hold up rejuvenation of East Hill Road in Homer. But City Public Works Director Jan Keiser updated the city council on Monday, saying a vocal public might be pushing the cash-strapped state agency into action.

Several major public works projects around Homer were put into motion in 2020, with many coming to fruition this year. One, on Tazmania Court, will bring city water and sewer to that neighborhood for the first time. Another will upgrade the lone pump station that removes all the sewage from the Homer Spit. A different project in the same general vicinity -- a seawall to protect Ocean Drive properties -- will begin this week, according to Homer Public Works Director Jan Keiser.
