Ambler Road Out for Comment

Bureau of Land Management

A draft environmental impact statement for the state proposed Ambler Road is out for public comment. The Bureau of Land Management document is a step toward permitting the over 2 hundred mile industrial access road from the Dalton Highway to the Ambler Mining District. As KUAC’s Dan Bross reports, the road promises new development and raises environmental concerns.

Dan has been in public radio news in Alaska since 1993. He’s worked as a reporter, newscaster and talk show host at stations in McGrath, Valdez and Fairbanks. Dan’s experience includes coverage of a wide range of topics, from wolf control to the Trans-Alaska Pipeline and dog mushing.
