The Alaska Highway is a route full of history and controversy. It was initially constructed during World War II and connects the 48 contiguous States of the US to Alaska through Canada. Work on the highway was completed in 1942; at the time it was 2,237 km long, but it is becoming increasingly shorter because of rerouting.
The map below was printed by the Alberta Travel Bureau in 1943.
