Ketchikan is also famous for being the site of the "Gravina Bridge," famously dubbed the Bridge to Nowhere by critics. Former Senator Ted Stevens, before running into legal trouble, was highly criticized for procuring funding on the bridge. In reality the bridge was not "to nowhere," but was to the Ketchikan International Airport, which is a major transportation hub for Alaska. Currently travelers must use a ferry to travel to and from the airport across the half-mile wide Tongass Narrows.
