Only half of those roads – Alaska Highway, Glenn Highway, Parks Highway, Richardson Highway, Seward Highway, Sterling Highway â€“ are fully paved. Most are open year-round, but some are closed during the winter.

No other city in the state has as many as 50,000 people. As a result, Anchorage was the fastest growing city in Alaska in 2017. The 10 largest cities in Alaska are:
