While we get all the song and dance about the so-called “road” saving lives, how many will die using that road? So, yes, people will do stupid things like they always do: They will drive it in bad weather, inebriated, drugged and just plain badly.
And for all the song and dance, how many people have died because there is no road? I cannot recall one King Cove death, road related or not in all the years I have been hearing it.
Spend the money on health support for the entire Western Alaska community system where it would do real good, not PR spin.
