The Alaska Highway is the only road connecting the US mainland to Alaska. It was built by the US military in just seven months in 1942. Originally intended to enable the transportation of supplies to Alaska in the event of a Japanese invasion, the highway takes in swamps and mountains along its 2,400-kilometer route. Today the highway is a popular route for tourists and truckers.
