Re: May need to go to Alaska sooner rather than later
Seems like the best roads in the far north are gravel, not asphalt.
But, at least in Alaska, they have been paving the highways to get matching Federal funds. Bureaucrats in Washington DC have decided how roads must be built to get Federal money. Doesn't matter if cheaper construction is better for the area and climate involved, roads must be built to a certain standard. So, we get asphalt roads that frostheave and buckle and heat the permafrost.
The Dalton was a much better road when it was all gravel. Now it is all potholes and frostheaves.
I wonder if Canada has similar issues and that is why parts of the AlCan are in such poor shape.
