Kink Arm Bridge
By Ken Hudson


March 15, 2008

I don't know about Ketchikan but I do know about Anchorage and the Mat-Su Borough. Both of these areas are still growing even in a slowing economy, few areas still are. A bridge across the Knik Arm would open up new land to relieve Anchorages land shortage, stimulate the economy in the area and provide an alternate route to the Mat-Su.

Across the Knik Arm, there is open land all the way to up Wasilla, Alaska that will start to fill in (some already has started to fill in), and there is more land to the west and south of that. The Knik Arm Bridge is not a bridge to nowhere. Also, the Mat-Su Borough is a more logical place for the State Capital, although I do not want to push that part of the issue.

About: "I have been living in the area for five years and I have seen the growth in the area and I am aware of ongoing and planed projects on the Mat-Su side of the Kink Arm. From what I've seen, it is ridiculous to call it a bridge to nowhere."
