Historical Milepost 0 of the Alaska Highway is marked by a cairn and arch located at the east end of the large parking lot in Northern Alberta Railways (NAR) Park in Dawson Creek, British Columbia. Interpretive plaques surround the cairn, which is next to the traffic circle. The traffic circle here connects Highways 97 (Alaska), 2 (to Edmonton) and 49 (to Spirit River). The Surveyor Statue in the center of the traffic circle is a tribute to the engineers who arrived in Dawson Creek in 1942, to survey a route for the Alaska Highway.
