  GOLD RUN CREEK, Alaska — This clear waterway running through boreal swampland marks the farthest Cora the dog and I will be from a highway during our summer hike along. What travels at about six miles per hour, crosses over rivers and streams as well as three mountain passes, and takes six days to reach its destination? You've got it! Oil!

The U.S. Geological Survey installed 10 streamgaging and water-quality stations along the trans-Alaska pipeline route (TAPS) starting in These stations, mostly north of Fairbanks, add to the historical network of gaging stations and provide records of hydrologic conditions along the TAPS route. Length: miles. OVERVIEW: The mile-long Trans Alaska Pipeline System (TAPS) is one of the world's largest pipeline systems, an engineering icon that was the biggest privately funded construction project when constructed in the ing in Prudhoe Bay on Alaska's North Slope, TAPS stretches through rugged and beautiful terrain to Valdez, the northernmost ice-free port in North.

  A light raft enabled Ned Rozell and Cora to cross the Salcha River about nine miles from the Richardson Highway along the path of the trans-Alaska pipeline. Designing and building the Trans Alaska Pipeline System presented unprecedented challenges. The mile-long steel pipe would cross mountain ranges, rivers and major earthquake fault lines. Alaska’s semi-frozen permafrost prompted the engineering decision to build more than half the line above ground.

The Trans Alaska Pipeline System starts in Prudhoe Bay and stretches through rugged and beautiful terrain to Valdez, the northernmost ice-free point in America.

The Trans Alaska Pipeline System was designed and constructed to move oil from the North Slope of Alaska to the northern most ice-free port in Valdez, Alaska.

Here you'll find a good close up view of the Trans Alaska Pipeline and a remote-operated valve site, with Pump Station 4 in the background. At points along the pipeline, pressure relief valves are used to relieve pressure and keep it below a designated level or stop the flow of oil if necessary.
