I have to agree with this person on a bridge, build one that way maybe Melakatla can also build one at the end of Annette Island and have the bridge connect to Gravina where they currently also have a road to no-where built.

I mean come on, you look at down south, if it weren't for bridges, where would we be? The people down south have NO IDEA on Alaska. Ffor instance, my insurance company I'm dealing with had no idea I couldn't just jump in my car and drive to see my cardiologist. I told them i live on an island and the only way in and out of our island is either by float plane, or ferry (depending on what days it's running) . For the planes it depends on the weather. The Insurance company told me they had no idea and NOW they understand.

So I believe a bridge would be more than appropriate for both Annette Island and Ketchikan to hook up with Gravina.
