On the road to Kake intertie

State funding is helping move forward two separate projects for the Southeast community of Kake. The governor and legislature this spring approved 40 million dollars in capital budget money for construction of a road between the Kupreanof Island village and the neighboring town of Petersburg.

That organization will use the funding to study a transmission line for electrical power between the two communities. Alexis Kenyon reports.
