Port of Anchorage Overhaul to Cost $700 Million

Alaskans are questioning the $700M price tag for a huge expansion for the Port of Anchorage.  The Port of Anchorage is the main conduit for 75% of all goods sold statewide.  The present plan for the new Port calls for doubling the land mass of the Port by erecting a long steel wall in the bay and then filling in the area with gravel.  Environmentalists and residents worry about the scale of the project, but officials insist that it is necessary to bring the aging Port into the millennium.  Anchorage Daily News, http://www.adn.com/front/story/353533.html
