The Alaska Department of Transportation has described the Haines Highway at 19 Mile as "among the most expensive in Alaska to maintain due to the severity of mudslides that cross it during heavy rain," according to the Chilkat Valley News.
To deal with the problem, in 2021, a 1,200-foot section of the highway was elevated 40 feet with four huge culverts large enough to allow heavy equipment to clear them of debris were installed.
