The George Parks Highway (numbered Interstate A-4 and Alaska Route 3), usually called simply
the Parks Highway, runs 520 km from the Glenn Highway 56 km north of Anchorage to Fairbanks
in the Alaska Interior. The highway, originally known as the Anchorage-Fairbanks Highway, was
completed in 1971.

The highway, which mostly parallels the Alaska Railroad, is one of the most important roads in Alaska.
It is the main route between Anchorage and Fairbanks (Alaska's two largest metropolitan areas),
the principal access to Denali National Park and Preserve and Denali State Park.

The Seward Highway is a highway that extends 201 kms from Seward to Anchorage.
It was completed in 1951 and runs through the scenic Kenai Peninsula, Chugach National Forest,
Turnagain Arm, and Kenai Mountains. The Seward Highway is numbered Alaska Route 9 (K-9)
for the first 60 kms from Seward to the Sterling Highway, and AK-1 for the remaining distance
to Anchorage.The Seward Highway south of Anchorage requires headlights to be on at all times.

There are two short sections of the highway that are built to freeway standards. These include an
area near the highway's intersection with the in Palmer and a south-side stretch in Fairbanks.
The distance between Anchorage and Fairbanks is 577 km. Distance between Anchorage and
Seward is 205 km.

The 1964 Great Alaska Earthquake and Tsunam
It’s March 27, 1964, 5:36 pm in southern Alaska. A powerful 9.2 magnitude earthquake shakes the ground for nearly five minutes.
The ensuing sunamis wipe out entire villages, and cause landslides that send neighborhoods from suburban Anchorage into the ocean
