Shakwak Highway

Yukon says U.S. is on the hook for Alaska Highway upgrades

Apr 17, 2019

The Shakwak Highway, or Shakwak -- Lingit for "between the mountains" -- is a stretch of the Alaska Highway that connects the Interior to the panhandle.  It starts in Haines and goes north through the Yukon Territory.

Parts of this vital link are degrading and the Yukon government says the United States should foot the bill.
