The purpose of the Gravina Access Project is to improve surface transportation between Revillagigedo Island--home of the Ketchikan Gateway Borough, City of Ketchikan and the City of Saxman-- and Gravina Island, the location of the Ketchikan International Airport and adjoining lands that offer recreational and development potential. Currently, the airport ferry provides the only regular access between the two islands. The airport ferry delivers passengers to the airport terminal and from there they can access lands outside of the airport reserve boundary by traveling along the Gravina Island Highway and Lewis Reef Road. These roads provide access to some private lands and the Ketchikan Gateway Borough’s developable lands north and south of the airport reserve. Bostwick Lake Road, off of Lewis Reef Road, provides access to Alaska Department of Natural Resources lands and the U.S. Forest Service’s timber lands in the interior of Gravina Island.
