Bridge ownership at center of land dispute in Alaska

    ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — The ownership of a bridge leading to a planned new agricultural district west of Nenana is under dispute, with an Alaska Native tribe this week blocking the bridge to keep out construction crews.

    The Nenana Native Association has since ended the blockade.

    The Anchorage Daily News reports the tribe asserts that it owns the bridge over the Nenana River, and can limit access to the area.

    The mayor of Nenana says the city owns the bridge and public right-of-way.

    State officials said they’re looking into the ownership question.
