This money was appropriated by Congress to build the bridge,
we really did not have much input as to where it was going to
be built but DOT said that the best place was there. They also
said that there was a need to build the bridge. If we do not
build the bridge the state will be glad to use the money elsewhere
up north. This was talked about when the airport was being built
that it would be built someday. We need a bridge to the mainland
someday but it's not our option right now.
I want the bridge because it
will help Alaska and Ketchikan to grow, if there is a danger
of disturbing burial sites I am sure they can adjust, they will
need some input from the tribal folk. We need to all get on the
same page though and look to the future. (Apologies to Don Hoff,
just don't think he understands our options)!!
