  1. Thanks very much
    – there’s a lot to be said about the link between road design and health impacts from the vehicles that use them
    – if you have any specific suggestions or comments, they would be most welcome

  2. PM 2.5 concerns here in Fairbanks, Alaska. Why does the USA AirNow site map not include Alaska? Last winter we had dozens of exceedences of the 35 microns/cubic meter of air and its not even on their map.
