382-Taking Over The Haul Road – Alaska

Every now and then a flag team in trucks will wave you down and have you pull over and wait for up to a half an hour. A big load is coming up the road and there is no room for you. The road is mostly 24 feet wide and this load is 22 feet wide. He is also going 50 mph. If you hadn’t pulled over and came around a bend and there he was, he ain’t stopping. This is how everything got to the North Slope over all the years – one piece at a time via truck.
