Cordova is a small, remote fishing town on the Gulf of Alaska. It once was a port for the Kennicott Mine which is now in Wrangell St Elias National Park to the north, but the mine closed and the road plans were abandoned. But a very expensive bridge was built between two large glaciers (that have now receded immensely) and just gets to the other side, with nowhere to go. A portion of the bridge collapsed during the Good Friday earthquake of 1964, and was repaired by just putting a ramp across the part that had collapsed.
