the world's most spectacular roads


Located in Valdez-Cordova Census Area, Alaska, United States, the Lakina River Bridge is one of the most spectacular bridges in the world.

It lies at milepost 44.3 of the gravel McCarthy Highway (closed in winters). The bridge is 190 ft long and the weight limit is 32 Ton. It's not just floods and avalanches that shut down remote roads in Alaska. In this case, a bridge was heavily damaged by a rogue trucker with an over weight load! According to local legend, after nearly destroying the bridge, the (alleged) culprit drove away and was never seen again.
