Alaska Congressman Don Young released the following statement today regarding the release of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's environmental impact statement for the road connecting King Cove and Cold Bay:
"The residents of King Cove have been waiting for over 20 years to build this road and today's news is a step in the right direction. The next step in this process is for Alaskans to comment and I am confident that Alaskans will make their voices heard. Having worked with King Cove on this project for years, anything that prevents this road from being built and being built soon, is unacceptable to me."
