Deterioration of South Tongass Highway
By Walt & Carol Hoefer


July 05, 2006

This is around our 8th visit back to Ketchikan since 1992. I have seen the paving of North Tongass out to Settlers Cove. Current upgrades to Tongass Ave. thru the city. Why has South Tongass been allowed to deteriorate to its current condition? It was like this three years ago. I am sure there are more residents per mile on South Tongass than any other stretch of highway on the island. With oil hitting $75.00 today, the State should be able to pave it in gold.
