Town of Tok Alaska - Junction of Alaska Highway#2 'The Alaska Highway'
In the 1940s and 1950s, the Tok Cut-Off was constructed connecting Tok with the Richardson Highway at Glennallen. It was a 'cut-off' because it allowed travelers from the United States to travel to Valdez, Alaska and Anchorage, in southern Alaska without going further north to Delta Junction and then traveling south on the Richardson Highway. The Tok Cutoff follows the old Eagle-Valdez Trail, built in the early 1900s to service a military telegraph line that stretched from the coast to the interior of Alaska.
