A story on the Juneau access road in Tuesday's edition of the Juneau Empire misstated the sources of financing for the project. Overall, the project will require $18.7 million per year over 12 years from the state's federal highway aid program, which includes 9 percent state and 91 percent federal dollars. Those matching dollars from the state would total about $20 million. Another $20 million is needed in state general fund appropriations, bringing the total amount required from the state over 12 years to about $40 million. A complete breakdown of the numbers is available at dot.alaska.gov/juneauaccess/ under the link "2007 Annual Update to the Financial Plan."
