Trans-Alaska Pipeline

Astronauts say they can see it from space, but visitors to Alaska don’t have to go that far to see one of engineering’s modern marvels, the Trans-Alaska Pipeline.

A trip to Valdez allows the best views of the pipeline as it snakes its way down to the marine terminal at tidewater and unloads its liquid cargo into waiting tankers. This is not the only way to see the pipeline, however. A pipeline viewing area is located just minutes away from Fairbanks and along the Haul Road, a road that parallels the structure
