      The highway was constructed during World War II for the purpose of connecting the contiguous United States to Alaska through Canada. It begins at the junction with several Canadian highways in Dawson Creek, British Columbia, and runs to Delta Junction, Alaska (which is known for the official end of the highway), via Whitehorse, Yukon. We have detailed maps of every major highway in Alaska, the Yukon and northern BC. Our maps of Alaska provide mileages between major stops, points of interest, parking and rest areas as well as campgrounds and recreation areas. If you plan to drive these highways in Alaska and the north, don’t start without our detailed Alaska road maps!

Climatic conditions and amount of use per mile involved place concrete paving beyond the limits of economic consideration. The Alaska Highway has made this possible, but unless procurement of food and lodging along the way is made easy, little travel will result.

The indirect consequences of postwar use of the roads of Alaska can hardly be appraised in dollars-and-cents value to the Territory and to the nation. Get this from a library. Recreational resources of the Alaska highway and other roads in Alaska. [United States. National Park Service.].
