'Road to Nowhere' opens in Alaska
Hall Anderson / Ketchikan Daily News
Although Congress killed the funding for the 'bridge to nowhere' and Governor Palin killed the project (because the funding was lost), she still allowed the highway that was going to lead to the bridge to be built at a cost of 26 million dollars.
"Ketchikan* Mayor Bob Weinstein said the 3.2-mile road now is ideal for road races and hunting and possibly some commercial development. But with no bridge to serve it, that's probably about it."
