Right of way clearing project doesn't make sense

Two years ago I also tried to get information from DOT for why they had to cut the whole right of way between Ninilchik and Clam Gulch.

I also tried to find out why the project wasn't bid and where the money came from. Never found that out either except it was donated by the President of the USA so DOT represented by Carl High had to spend it.

Maybe if the State DOT has to cut all the trees off the ROW they should also keep our driveways clear on the ROW every time it snows 2 inches. Does public opinion mean anything to these money spenders? Who are they really working for?
