Yes the price of the bridge was ridiculous but what government project isn't!
Currently Ketchikan is isolated to the island of Revilla, an island that is mostly off limits because it is in the middle of the Tongass national forest an immense wilderness larger than all forests in the lower 48. Revilla has no land left for residents to grow, no room for new businesses and the jobs they could bring us, no room for homes or anything else you might want to make your life here in Alaska.
Gravina was and is our future. But now it will never be because you people who will never live here have smeared our dreams!
Why not pay attention to your own back yard and leave us to take care of ours! Proportionally Alaskans pay more than any other American in taxes and Alaska gets less than any other state in federal dollars.
Sign me sick of you lower 48's
