Alaska Highway: The state’s longest road has a 1,200-mile (2,500km) stretch of unpaved, rocky and sometimes icy roads.
Some have been declared off-limits to vehicles.
“If you go on a road, you can’t have a conversation with a person or a vehicle,” said Dan Miller, an environmentalist and highway engineer who lives in the state.
“You’re supposed to have a seatbelt on, you’re supposed.
If you don’t have one, you just don’t get to sit down.
It doesn’t get the respect it deserves.” “
The Highway of Deaths is a major road, but it’s also a road that has not seen the kind of work that other roads have been able to do.
It doesn’t get the respect it deserves.”
State officials have been struggling to deal with the toll of the state’s growing epidemic.
A survey last year found that more than 1.3 million people in Alaska were living with chronic or severe health conditions, with nearly 4.2 million of those individuals receiving a medical diagnosis.
About 12.2% of the population lived with at least one chronic or acute health condition, and 11.2%, or 569,000, lived with a chronic or moderate condition.
The state’s toll of chronic conditions, including asthma, diabetes, and hypertension, has grown by a factor of about 7.6% annually since 2009, according to the Department of Health and Social Services.
In 2017, the state recorded 521,933 cases of pneumonia, 1,719,851 of whooping cough, 1.4 million cases of tuberculosis and 1.7 million cases, according the department.
And it’s not just the toll on roads and infrastructure that’s getting worse.
Alaska’s population has doubled in the past 30 years, and in 2018, the average monthly wage in the territory was $1,094, according data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Meanwhile, the health care costs for Alaska’s population have grown by 7.4% annually.
Miller is frustrated that there is so little public awareness about the toll that’s being put on Alaska.
He said it’s the sort of thing that, at a minimum, people need to be concerned about.
It’s really frustrating.
And there’s a lot of money that’s going into it,” Miller said.
But Miller said that as long as the state continues to fund and operate its highways, people will continue to die.
Some residents who rely on state highways said they are also concerned that the state is failing to properly fund and maintain roads.”
People have been told that they have to buy insurance, but there are no roads,” said Alina Stenning, a resident of the city of Fort Snelling.
She said the lack of funding for roads and other infrastructure is putting the lives of Alaskans at risk.”
It’s just not a place that I can put my kids.”
