A Guide to the Alaska Highway ("Alcan")

The historic Kiskatinaw Bridge, the last of the original wooden bridges built on the highway. It is accessed by a loop road at Km 27.8. Construction of the bridge by civilian contractors began in November 1942; 534 feet (162.5 meters) long, it curves 9 degrees along its length. It had a weight limit of 25 tons, and the large number of trucks exceeding that weight made construction of a new bridge necessary by the 1970s.
