Left - Turnagain Pass on the Seward Highway (Hwy 1), facing north towards Anchorage. Although the summit is only 988 feet above sea level, Turnagain Pass gets a healthy snowfall each winter. Even in late May, a significant amount of snow still envelops the nearby Kenai Mountains. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

This is the second of two four-lane sections on the Seward Highway between Turnagain Pass and the Hope Highway Junction at Canyon Creek. The other concurrent passing lane section lies a few miles to the north near Granite Creek. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - The Seward Highway is carried high above Canyon Creek, south of Hope. The new Canyon Creek Bridge was completed in 1997. The construction project also included a substantial relocation of the Seward Highway in an effort to remove several successive sharp curves in the original highway's alignment. About 1 mile of the Seward Highway was relocated. In addition, the junction with the Hope Highway was also improved. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Left - Old Canyon Creek Bridge on a former alignment of the Seward Highway (Hwy 1), facing south. This narrow bridge was built in 1950, and is located on a sharp horizontal curve. It carried Seward Highway traffic up until the late 1990s, when a new bridge was constructed a short distance to the west.

Right - Facing north across the Old Canyon Creek Bridge. After the Seward Highway (Hwy 1) was relocated onto the new structure in 1997, the old highway alignment was converted into a pedestrian path. The horizontal geometry of this structure is rather interesting. The road alignment is so constrained at this location that a substantial curve superelevation had to be incorporated into the design of the bridge deck.

Left - Old Canyon Creek Bridge as seen from the Seward Highway (Hwy 1). This structure carried the Seward Highway from the time the bridge was completed in 1950, up until the completion of the current Canyon Creek Bridge in 1997. The old Seward Highway structure is now a pedestrian bridge. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - Elevation makes a huge difference at this latitude. While spring has definitely arrived in the valley, the mountains are still gripped in an icy winter. The difference between the two seasons is quite striking while traveling along the Seward Highway south of Hope. See an Enlarged Photo Here.
