When construction started on the Alaska Highway in 1942, Dawson Creek, British Columbia was a tiny hamlet of 500 people. The "Mile Zero" signpost marking the exact spot where the iconic road begins is now in the middle of an intersection in the business district. So the "Alaska Highway Monument" was created, just around the corner on Alaska Avenue (CA 92), to allow tourists to capture photos.
If you go:
This is the place to safely take your Mile Zero pictures. Be sure to stop at the adjacent Dawson Creek Visitor's Center, where they have a great selection of free brochures, maps, hotel and campground information.There is ample parking for RVs.
