Destruction Bay (rightly named) will never be a smooth highway. The sub-surface under the road is not conducive to a 'normal' smooth highway. It is basically, always under construction and all that means is yearly grading.

All you can do is know that those miles will be slow going. Plan for it.

Left from SC on June 8, 2016 going back in a few weeks. Downside - you will need to change your oil by the time you get to Tok, AK. Stay at the Sourdough campground and get their breakfast two sourdough pancakes reindeer sausage and two eggs to order. Make an appointment to get your oil changed just before leaving town at Northern energy or another station in town.
