Alaska governor files intent to sue to build road through federal wildlife refuge

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Monday, April 7, 2014 7:41 PM EDT

Alaska Gov. Sean Parnell says his state will sue the federal government to put a road through a national wildlife refuge.

The Republican says in a news release Monday that the village of King Cove needs access to emergency medical flights provided at an all-weather airport in Cold Bay.

Parnell says it was unconscionable for the Interior Department to reject the one-lane gravel road through the Izembek National Wildlife Refuge in December.

Environmental groups strongly oppose the road planned for an isthmus along the 150-square-mile Izembek Lagoon.

The lagoon is home to world's largest-known bed of eelgrass, which provides fodder to migratory waterfowl — such as Pacific brant, endangered Steller's eiders — as they head south for the winter.
