Would enjoy better maintained roads
By Caroline Luckey


January 02, 2006

As I drove Ketchikan roads today I found myself traveling roads that are not maintained well and not well lighted. If the state is going to build a bridge will it be maintained the same way?

While many of the bridge supporters are for expansion and growth I would like to advocate for taking care of what we have. If we can do this then we may be ready for more.

I am not personally troubled with the ferry and or water taxi. I find it to be a natural part of where I live. I rather enjoy the ferry and have learned to appreciate the time it takes me to travel.

Practically speaking though if I had to travel a bridge to efficiently get me to the airport I would prefer that it get me there directly rather than the proposed route.

I do not pretend to have the wisdom that I know what is best for our community. I do have an interest in preserving the simplicity of our home and appreciating it for what we have now. I would enjoy better maintained roads on Revilla Island at present.

Thank you for your time .
