Ketchikan Roads
By Charles Moon


June 29, 2005

Just a quick thought on our highways and streets here in Ketchikan: Instead of building a road from the airport to Lewis Reef how about fixing the roads we drive on everyday? Instead of building a bridge to Gravina let's spend some "Pork Barrel" money on improving the infastructure where it is used the most, on our road system.

All of the main roads need improvements such as widening, bike paths, and shoulders to walk on. Paving without deep ruts and large holes. Better lighting on the dark highway corridors. Better drainage.

The people who drive on South Tongass Highway have my deepest sympathy, there are better roads in most third world countries.

Thanks for letting speak my piece, I feel a lot better now.
