Knik and Gravina Fully Supported
By Gov. Frank H. Murkowski
December 17, 2005
It would appear that the special interest groups and Outside
media have moved on to other things now that they've done their
best to mischaracterize two important bridge projects here at
home. We know the truth about the importance of the Knik Arm
Crossing and the Gravina Island access projects, which is why
I am proposing full state support. Quite simply, Anchorage and
Ketchikan are out of room and these projects are critical for
their future growth. They serve as important shipping and regional
hub communities and these two bridge projects are critical to
the economic health of their respective residents. I am asking
all Alaskans to speak out the next time special interest groups
are quoted as labeling these projects a "Bridge to Nowhere."
They don't know the issue.
Note: Frank H. Murkowski is
the governor of Alaska.
