AK 1 and AK 4 join for a 14-mile, same-way duplex from Gakona Junction to Glennallen in Valdez-Cordova County.

Here is the approach to AK 1 on AK 4 southbound. AK 1 joins from the left, and the duplex curves to the right.

Turning left onyo AK 1, this directionless AK shield stands. This location is about 140 miles from AK 1's northern end at AK 2 in Tok.

On AK 1 southbound, a JCT sign stands here to announce AK 4.

Here is the two-lane duplex near the northern split. This is the southbound view. AK 1 and AK 4 stay merged until just before Glennallen. Then AK 4 continues southward to Valdez, while AK 1 veers to the west and to Anchorage. No confirmation AK 1/AK 4 shields are posted.

 


David Slauenwhite 5/02

Heading in the opposite direction here, AK 1 and AK 4 split just ahead. None of the AK route shields have a posted direction in this area.

 


David Slauenwhite 5/02

Following AK 4 north past the split, an unusual mileage sign can be seen.

 


David Slauenwhite 5/02

Here is a closer view of the mileage sign. Three CLOSED signs sit with their back faces showing. David notes that with the lack of traffic in the area and the stairs and platform under the sign, anyone could easily flip a sign so that the road appears to close ahead. AK 4 ends at AK 2 in Delta Junction after meeting the east end of unpaved AK 8 at Paxson.
