About 70 people turned out Thursday night for a meeting in Fairbanks to talk about the proposed Ambler Road project. That’s the 211-mile two-lane gravel roadway the Alaska Industrial Development and Export Authority is proposing to build from the Dalton Highway to a mineral-rich site near the village of Ambler, in the northwest corner of the state.

Opponents say it’s a fiscal boondoggle that’ll bring pollution, disrupt habitat and harm subsistence hunting and fishing.
