Route description

Free sections

The longest free section of main lanes is on the southwest side of Jaketon, stretching from CR 215 north to Alaska Highway 7 This is maintained by the Alaska Department of Transportation.


A number of cameras are located at toll booths to record license plate information to a database and send a ticket via mail. Recently, this system has been upgraded to alert local authorities if a vehicle has been flagged for any reason, including Amber Alerts. When a flagged vehicle is detected, it notifies the closest law enforcement officer to investigate. At this time, Precinct 5 Constables and Brooks County Sheriff's Department are being notified, but Jaketon Police Department has shown interest and wishes to be included to be notified. The total number of cameras that are planned for the system is 35.
