Early Alcan report
I recently did a 'bonsai' trip up the Alcan after picking up a vehicle (not a MH) in the lower 48 and thought that I would post to road conditions. I know that things can/will change the next few weeks but.....
I entered Canada at Sumas, Washington and went through Hope, Cache Creek, Prince George, Dawson Creek, Fort Nelson, Whitehorse to Tok and then the Tok cutoff back towards Palmer.
Most of the areas that I came through were just coming out of winter and starting to clean up from the winter. People are really making an attempt to get rid of all of the junk from winter. Road wise, most of the roads are OK at this time but I can see where there is going to be repairs going on this summer. Once past Whitehorse, there are the normal bad areas that are going to be in issue for travelers this summer. The area from Destruction Bay to the US/Canada border is really bad and for those that do not slow down, are going to pose problems. Once in Alaska, the Tok cut off is going to be an area that one will want to take their time on. Lots of frost heaves and loose gravel. Maybe the Alaska DOT will be working on this section but..... Once past Glenn Allen the road is in really good condition, as there was a major road project there last year.
Even with the road conditions, as long as one takes their time, the trip north is well worth it.
Everyone be safe and have a good trip.
