Palmer-Fishhook Road Background

The Palmer-Fishhook Road dates back to the early 1900's, supporting mining and early development activities in the area. It originally was constructed as a sled trail and eventually upgraded to light automobile standards. In 2000 the road was widened and paved. No substantial improvements have occurred since then.

What's Happening Now

Design is nearing completion.
