The state of Alaska is taking its fight with the federal government over a 10-mile, “life-saving” road to King Cove to the courts.
Gov. Sean Parnell announced his intentions Monday in a press release, calling the December rejection of the road “unconscionable.”
“In just the last several weeks, serious health-related evacuations have shown just how critical a road for medical evacuations is for residents,” Parnell said.
The lawsuit will be based on a historic right-of-way, according to the press release.
