Transport Requirements for the Growth of Northwest North America Vol 3 MAPS
Transport Requirements for the Growth of Northwest North America Vol 3 MANY fold out maps.  1961 Approx  inch thick.  Letter from the chairman, Alaska International Rail and highway commission, transmitting the final report of the Alaska International rail and highway commission, pursuant to public law.   Research report by Battelle Memorial Institute on an integrated Transport system to encourage economic development of Northwest North America.
1. Scope: This report, prepared by Brown & Root, Inc. for the BATTELLE MEMORIAL INSTITUTE in behalf of the Alaska International Rail and Highway Commission, is based on the findings of a cursory survey of the northern part of British Columbia, the extreme southern part of the Yukon Territory, and parts of Alaska. The basic purpose of the survey was to try and develop reasonably realistic estimates of cost for the construction of: 1) a shorter highway connection between the Pacific-Northwest states and the new State of Alaska; and, 2) certain roads in Alaska which have been advocated as being essential to the economic development of the state. In addition to preparing estimates of cost for constructing gravel surfaced roads, estimates covering the cost of paving both the new and the existing routes have been prepared. The report also covers a route which would connect Petersburg, Alaska with the authorized Stewart-Cassiar Road in British Columbia. Estimates are also presented to show the cost of upgrading the existing "Haines Cut-off" road to a standard that would warrant keeping the route open to traffic the year around. Paving cost estimates were likewise prepared for this route. Cost estimates covering the routes in western Alaska are for a lower type of road. This type of road is frequently referred to as "Pioneer" or "Development" roads.
An attempt has also been made to present realistic estimates of annual costs for maintaining paved highways versus those for maintaining gravel surfaced roads. The absence of basic cost data upon which to base estimates leaves these figures open to debate.
