Protecting our businesses
and livelihoods from
a half a billion dollar
The Alaska Legislature has authorized the Alaska Industrial Development and Export Authority (AIDEA) to aggressively pursue plans to construct the West Susitna Access Mega-Road.
This huge and destructive project, would significantly hurt Alaskan business owners, including lodges, hunting and fishing guides, air taxi services, and others, while covering the costs of foreign mining companies with speculative, unproven claims in the region. Estimates are that the project could cost the State of Alaska over a half a billion dollars, even before factoring for inflation and supply chain issues.
Proposed 108-mile road across untouched areas of the Susitna River to the Yentna Mining District
Despite overwhelming public opposition and testimony by residents in the Matanuska-Susitna Borough, the Mat-Su Borough Committee has authorized the project to continue with no requirements for independent cost-benefit analysis. The Alaska Range Alliance believes that the future of our Alaska businesses and the subsistence livelihoods of the local community are at stake. Cutting, filling, and bridging the rivers of the Susitna Basin will have catastrophic impacts on this region, one of the last strong-holds of King salmon in Alaska.
Join us to stop Alaskan dollars from going to subsidize foreign corporations at the expense of Alaskanbusinesses, sportsmen, and recreators.
