★ Copper River Highway

River highway copper extends 49.5 miles from Cordova along the old railbed of the copper river and northwestern railway. Construction began in 1945 and was originally intended to link Cordova with the state highway system at Chitina. The million dollar bridge, which carried trains until the CR&NW shut down of amp was converted to use the highway. This is one of two discontinuous segments of Alaska route 10.

The road extended only slightly beyond the bridge when the Good Friday earthquake of 1964 halted construction and severely damaged the million dollar bridge, collapsing the North span. Was made temporary repairs and the bridge continued to be used. Permanent repairs were not completed until 2005.

The first 12 miles 19 km of the road is paved, the rest gravel. All-wheel drive primitive road continues for 10 miles 16 km beyond the highway to the Allen river.

Highway 36 last mile was de facto abandoned in 2011 due to the washout of the approach to the bridge 339.
