Sort of. Palin did formally end the infamous pork-barrel project from tiny Ketchikan to remote Gravina Island. But by the time she ended it, most of the state had turned against it, and much of the funding from Congress had been diverted to other road projects. In 2006, she campaigned in favor of the federal funds for the bridge to an island with 50 inhabitants and an airport and only abandoned it last year "after the project had become an embarrassment to the state, after federal dollars for the project were pulled back and diverted to other uses in Alaska," according to the Associated Press. As independent fact-checking website Politifact notes, "Palin didn't kill it, she just performed the last rites."
