US 97

Voyager:
Has it always ended in Weed at I-5 (old 99)?

corco:
Yes

Voyager:
Really? I figured it might had gone to the Pacific Ocean or somewhere in the Trinity Alps. For some reason I really like that highway. How far north does it go?

corco:
97's always had pretty much the same alignment minus some minor local deviations. It goes clear up to Canada and is Central Washington and Oregon's main corridor. It continues in Canada as BC-97, which is the Alaska highway.

At one point they were going to designate the Alaska Highway within Alaska as US-97, but they were unable to get the Yukon to change their route number from Territorial Route 1, so the plans were scrapped.

Old US 299 served the Pacific Ocean/Trinity Alps area

Voyager:
Doesn't 97 go through Bend? Did it always go through it?
