The Dalton Highway & Pipeline

The Dalton Highway & Pipeline

This image was taken perhaps 20 miles into the Dalton Highway (aka The Haul Road, AK 11) and shows the Alyeska oil pipeline paralleling the road for a distance. The road was purposely built both to service the pipeline and to provide a means of transporting equipment and supplies from just north of Fairbanks to the oil rich North Slope.
