There were "Mile 0" signposts put up at other locations than Dawson Creek. This one was at Whitehorse, Yukon, in 1942 - it actually marks Whitehorse as Mile 0 of the Northern Sector of the highway project. The sign on the Dodge weapons carrier says: "First truck, Dawson Creek to Whitehorse. Headquarters, Northwest Service Command. 1030 miles, 71 hours" - it arrived in Whitehorse on September 27, 1942.
