Knik Arm bridge stays in short-term plan

March 25, 2010 

The proposed $680 million Knik Arm bridge will stay in Anchorage's short-term transportation plan despite a push to delay construction until 2018 or later, according to a city spokeswoman. The 3-2 vote to keep it in the plan was conducted by the AMATS Policy Committee, composed of two Anchorage Assembly members, Mayor Dan Sullivan and two state officials.

In a 6-5 vote last week, the Assembly approved a resolution by Assembly chairman Patrick Flynn to delay the bridge.
