Similar bridge in San Diego transits one hundred thirty six thousand people daily, and since 1965 it has been repaid completely.
Nor mr. Paxton did mention that during lenghty winters the Gravina bridge will expose people passing through to harsh climatic conditions, while under the Tongass Narrows a tube system, delivering pedestrians to the Airport will not, as well as the cargo ferries docked under a dome of a Commercial-Cultural Center, a Mall (CCC) do not either.
Ketchikan having such a Mall operating the entire year will feel themselves at home, to their benefit sharing that "home" with tourists from all over the world.
From an economical point of view, Ketchikans should think American, as well as Ketchikan, of course, and forget about the Gravina Bridge Access project, which, in opinion of the Ketchikan Gateway Borough manager Roy Eckert, is challenged by the CCC, and, therefore, the CCC deserves support of all representatives of the State of Alaska.
