The State of Alaska and Ketchikan
Gateway Borough are trying to back door the proposed bridge project
by constructing a 3.4 mile road project on Gravina costing the
American tax payer 25.7 million dollars that is 8 million dollars
per mile of dirt road for only a few private property owners
on Gravina Island. Kiewit Pacific Company is constructing the
road to nowhere, who was major campaign contributors to past
Governor Frank Murkowski who owns property on Gravina Island
near where the road is being constructed. Any one see a picture
developing here besides me? Thus, pressure or force the American
taxpayer to build the proposed boon-doggle bridge to nowhere
for few opulent people to drive to their properties. What a
scam on the taxpayers, the American People! Stop funding to
these worthless projects in Ketchikan, Alaska. This is my opinion.
