Got this from an Air Force group.
Mods: Also posted on Roads and RBREAKING:

Don't plan on coming to Alaska on the Alaska-Canadian (Alcan) Highway for the rest of the year... The only road to Alaska open is the Stewart-Cassiar Highway that follows the western Continental Divide up the Rockies and it is rustic.... You can also take the Alaskan Marine Highway from Bellingham, WA to Haines, AK but most sailings are booked. This is the Laird River (Laird Hot Springs) that overshot its banks...and took out the Al-Can...

Cassiar is a good route to see more of British Columbia and Yukon. Can hit parts of lower panhandle of Alaska.
We usually use the Alaska Highway going North and Cassiar southbound.

Wow and I though it would take dozers 2 weeks to cut a bypass.

No big deal in the far north. [emoticon]

Some of the Alaska Highway has moved from the original route. The old road is still used by locals. From the article, Highways has opened it up as a detour.
