On Annette Island the military are building a road to Metlakatla from Race Point just across the channel from Mountain Point in Ketchikan. Rather than build the "Bridge to Nowhere," build it to Annette Island. It makes sense. It would open up land for development that far exceeds anything Ketchikan has in land value. It would access a bigger, better, safer, more cost effective affordable airport.
Considering the current economies in Ketchikan and Metlakatla, some mutual benefits would manifest for both sides, with the bridge to somewhere.
