Nine Mile Bridge

Crossing the Situk River at the Nine Mile Bridge

Located outside of the small coastal community of Yakutat, in the U.S. state of Alaska, Nine Mile Bridge is one of the most spectacular bridges in the world.

Isolated among the lowlands along the Gulf of Alaska, the bridge is 27.60 m (90.55 ft) long crossing the Situk River. The Situk River is an important fishery with several species of pacific salmon. This is a popular fishing spot. Be prepared for wet and chilly weather and a backcountry experience.
Located in the Tongass National Forest, the bridge carries the unpaved Forest Highway 10 (also known as Alsek Road and Dangerous River Road). The road stretches from Yakutat to the Dangerous River.
