Who Needs to Wait for an Ice Bridge When There is a Russian Tunnel to the US?


“The rumors about a Russian effort to construct what would be the world’s longest tunnel connecting Alaska and Siberia escalated to a fever pitch…” begins an article in Forbes. Anuncertain headline read: “Bering Strait Tunnel to Connect U.S. and Russia?” Even expectant Alaskans have been kept in the dark. “More Rumors About Elusive Bering Strait Tunnel: Will It Ever Happen?” read the Alaska Dispatch. Disconcerting for a community so close to Russia that one resident claims she can see the country from her backyard.

Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich footed the $160 million for the drill that will be used to tunnel underneath the Bering Strait.
