Big Delta

Big Delta (145.73W 64.03N) was the proposed Alaska terminus for a military highway from a railhead in Canada.  This highway did not yet exist in 1941, but when completed, it tied into the Richardson Highway to Fairbanks. An airstrip was also established in 1942, which was renamed Fort Greely postwar (and should not be confused with Fort Greely, Kodiak).
