The idea for the Alaska Highway began in 1938 when President Roosevelt created the Alaskan International Highway Commission. It launched America's greatest engineering feat of the modern era, which was not easy to complete.

The first goal to create the Alaska Highway was to build a road in as short as one season to avoid winter conditions. Nevertheless, weather conditions made it difficult to complete the road. When summer arrived the ground turned to mush. Dust, muskeg*, mosquitoes, black flies, and no-seeums** were only a part of the hard times that the soldiers and civilians went through to complete the 1,600-mile stretch of road.

The highway could not be started in 1938, owing to a delay attributable to American isolationism. That was quickly put to rest following the attack on Pearl Harbor, and 11,000 soldiers with 7,500 civilians were assigned the job of building the Alaska Highway. Alaska was thought to be a target the Japanese would attack to take control of the north-south shipping lanes in the northern Pacific. That became more of a reality with the invasion of the Aleutian Islands. Following that series of attacks, it was deemed a military necessity.

The approval to start building the highway came on February 11, 1942, but construction did not begin until March. The main purpose of building the Alaskan Highway was the defense and resupply of the “Alaska Skyway," a string of World War II airfields that dotted the Alaskan coast. As soon as the civilians and regiments of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers began to build it, protests came from highway commissioners who disapproved of the route that was chosen by the army, which was taken from a War Department map. It was drawn along a line of existing airfields from Edmonton, Alberta, to Fairbanks, Alaska. Despite the protest, the construction began in five separate places at the same time, all working toward each other.
