Sarah Palin was for the Bridge to Nowhere (linking Gravina Island to Ketchikan) before she was against it. The access road is another story. According to the LA Times, the death of the bridge had no impact on the health of a 3.2 mile access road.
The road to nowhere, which is still being built, was originally intended to connect the airport on Gravina Island to the infamous Bridge to Nowhere. This dead-end highway is being built on an island with a population of 50, and sans-bridge it will end at a cul-de-sac across the Tongass Narrows from Ketchickan.
The mayor (of Ketchikan, Bob Weinstein) said he was considering posting a sign on the road for the rest of the world to see. He said it would read: “Built Under Gov. Sarah Palin, Paid for With Federal Earmarks.“
