  9. Lawmakers push back on mega-project orderRead the original story w/Photo

    Jan 22, 2015 | Anchorage Daily News

    Alaska has spent hundreds of millions of dollars on preliminary work for mega-projects that may never be built, but some legislators seemed reluctant to abandon projects that they've supported for years without fully funding. In the first public hearing since Gov. Bill Walker ordered discretionary work on six mega-projects stopped, legislators attending a joint session of the House and Senate transportation committees questioned just how big the savings would be from stopping work.

    Jan 13, 2015 | Anchorage Daily News

    State transportation officials plan to redirect more than $150 million in federal funds intended for a pair of controversial megaprojects and put the money toward less glamorous efforts such as road maintenance and bridge replacement. But the Knik Arm bridge and Juneau Access project -- two of several megaprojects targeted by Gov. Bill Walker for possible elimination - are not dead, transportation officials said.

  11. Knik Arm, Juneau road critics challenge Transportation commissioner on projectsRead the original story w/Photo

    Jan 10, 2015 | Anchorage Daily News

    Gov. Bill Walker proposed limiting work on a half-dozen projects as the state faces unprecedented declines in crucial oil revenues, but Kemp warned that stopping or delaying the two transportation projects could be costly in itself. Because the state has already spent millions of federal highway dollars on those projects, including $72.9 million on the proposed toll bridge over Knik Arm and $25.7 million on the road north of Juneau that would shorten the ferry ride to Haines and Skagway, it might have to pay back the federal government, Kemp warned.

    Dec 21, 2014 | Anchorage Daily News

    Known for big pursuits and outsized dreams, Alaska might have to slash some of its long-pending megaprojects now that crashing oil prices threaten to gut the budget. But state officials involved in planning two of the state's big transportation initiatives -- nationally scorned as a road to nowhere and a bridge to nowhere -- say savings may not be easy to come by if the projects are cut.

That process drew a surprising 42,746 comments on the $574 million project to extend the Juneau road system 50.8 miles up Lynn Canal toward Skagway and Haines.

    Nov 11, 2014 | Anchorage Daily News

    Whether it's Bill Walker or Sean Parnell in the governor's office for the next four years, I sure hope whoever wins makes curtailing the dead-end Juneau road a top priority. Cutting this boondoggle is one of easiest ways to trim the budget and begin focusing on the priorities that will move Alaska forward.
