A Guide to the Alaska Highway ("Alcan")

One of the major re-routing projects on the Alaska Highway was at Trutch Mountain, Historic Mile 178. The old road went to the right to the top of the ridge at 4,134 feet in order to avoid the extensive muskeg below, while the new highway, opened on November 8, 1987, deals with the wet conditions in the bottom of the Minaker River valley. This section of the old road, about 30 miles long, is still driveable.
