Highway Conditions

Alaska’s highways are modern and well maintained, and traveler resources and services are plentiful in most areas.

There are also some unpaved roads in Alaska that lead to smaller communities and remote locations. These include the Denali, Dalton, and Top of the World highways and the McCarthy Road into the Kennecott Mines Historic Landmark. Portions of the Taylor Highway are also unpaved. Hatcher Pass Road is a narrow and scenic 49-mile long rugged mountain pass leading to the Independence Gold historical site but this road is not recommended for RV travel.

Many of Alaska’s roads are recognized by the National Scenic Byways program with two being designated as All-American Roads, the highest level of federal recognition available. The first is the Seward Highway, stretching from Anchorage to Seward in Southcentral Alaska. The second is the entire route of the Alaska Marine Highway System, the state ferry system and the only marine route in the National Scenic Byways program.
