Welcome to Dawson Creek
Dawson Creek is the official starting point of the Alaska Highway and home to the Mile 0 sign. This once small farming community grew in 1932 with the arrival of the Northern Alberta Railway and again in 1942 when the US Army used that very railway as a shipping point for construction equipment and crews to build the Alaska Highway. The city has been called the “Capital of the Peace” and is also known as “Mile 0 City” referring to its location at the southern end of the Alaska Highway.
Make sure you stop to stretch your legs and get proof of your visit with a photo in front of the Alaska Highway Mile Zero sign.
