Roads and Bridges to SOMEWHERE
By Rob Glenn
February 12, 2009
Mr. McGillvray, I have been saying that for many years. When
I lived in Ketchikan and the bridge was to Gravina was a big
topic, I said they needed a bridge and road to the mainland.
After I moved I said the same thing. But on here, people did
not like that. They wanted that bridge to Gravina period.
My whole thought was get the money and build so people would
be able to come and go from Ketchikan. The road would need gas
stations, public service, it would probably create needs for
housing and so on. Plus RV's could get there in the summer for
vacations. It would have created jobs.
But No the only thing people wanted was that bridge to Gravina
which they thought would create growth for Ketchikan. I wondered
how? I mean wouldn't it be better for people to be able to drive
into Ketchikan. It would have been another option off and on
All I can say Mr. McGillvray,, expect people to write pretty
negative comments about your initial topic. Seems the bridge
is still a sore subject. Maybe you will be lucky and they won't
