"Build the road Juneau to Skagway" bumper stickers are showing up on more and more vehicles in Skagway, Juneau, Sitka and even in Whitehorse, Yukon. People are speaking out on the subject of the East Lynn Canal Road and Juneau Access, and are not afraid to show their support for the road.
DOT has had public meetings in the communities and this has alleviated most of concerns about the road. They have done their homework. Now build the road!
I was born and raised in Southeast Alaska and have seen a lot of these "build the road projects" have tons of money spent on studies and consulting fees, only to be stuck on a shelf in some state office in Juneau and never build one foot of road. It is past time to build the road, Juneau to Skagway.
