Road to the Mainland
By Rob Glenn


May 29, 2005

As I have mentioned before I think that a road to the mainland would be great. However, I would not advocate getting rid of the Bellingham to Ketchikan ferry or any of the ferry runs in that matter. A road to the mainland would surely open the Ketchikan area up, however; there are a lot of people who do enjoy the ride up on the ferry, possibly who would not want to drive. There are also many people especially in the summer who are foot traffic. There are a lot of tourists who come up and do the hiking, kayak, and camping thing. There are also those who come up for work, and the ferry is a big resource. Recently Canada is making it difficult for Americans to enter their country if they have a blemish on their record (including DUI) so the ferry is always going to be necessary.

Otherwise I would like to thank those of you who comment on Sitnews concerning the bridge, this is only one way to make our voices heard.
