odd road stub[edit]

There is an odd road stub on the highway between the college road and danby street exits, It was supposed to go somewhere, but never got built and is now a road stub, only accessed by the local government as a snow dump area. Along with that, a pedestrian overpass to nowhere over the highway, I think those two thinbgs should be mentioned by the article.216.67.3.61 (talk) 06:44, 16 July 2012 (UTC) Michael

That was supposed to be a spur connecting to Minnie Street. It has yet to be built, and as far as I know has been off the table for a number of years. Basically, there is a tank farm (formerly Standard Oil of California, currently Sourdough Fuel, a subsidiary of Arctic Slope Regional Corporation) on the Minnie Street end which may have proven cost-prohibitive to remove (and perhaps also mitigate underground contamination). I've been calling that pedestrian bridge "The Bridge to Nowhere" for many years. Certainly a lot more real than the politically-invented bridges to nowhere elsewhere in Alaska.
Also, I found myself going through old yearbooks again. Guess who I came across purely by chance? Woodrow Johansen, Cordova High School class of 1932. I think there were only seven or eight students in that graduating class.RadioKAOS (talk) 21:35, 20 September 2012 (UTC)
