Izembek National Wildlife Refuge Road Proposal Cancelled
March 17, 2023 | Alaska
The Department of the Interior confirmed Tuesday that it would withdraw from a deal to allow the construction of a road through the Izembek National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska.
Under the Trump administration, the federal government had negotiated a land swap deal to build the road – an attempt to connect the city of King Cove with the nearby Cold Bay Airport. (Excerpt from NEWSMAX.)
