The following editorial first appeared in the Anchorage Daily News:
There’s no Knik Arm Crossing, but the idea spans decades.
There are good reasons for both facts.
First, the need for what’s likely to be a $1 billion or more project has never been proven. Many have a desire to build it, many see an echo of 19th century manifest destiny, many see opportunity of one sort or another.
But no one has made a solid case that Alaska needs this bridge. Hence no bridge.
