Road to a hole in the ground

Letter to the editor

Posted: Wednesday, November 17, 2004

Upon reading your article about a million dollars of public money being spent on Cascade Point road for Goldbelt and Coeur Alaska, I felt there were questions unanswered: What does the public get for its million dollars? Would the public have access to the road? If an enterprise needs to be subsidized a million dollars is it really a viable project?

If $1 million were available to spend on any transportation project in Juneau, would it be a dirt road 40 miles from town, that the public could not use?

If $1 million were available to create jobs for people who already live in Juneau, would it be in a nonrenewable extractive industry?

Roads are infrastructure, and infrastructure should take society forward, not to a hole in the ground.
