Alaska toll tunnel
Alaska has only one toll tunnel: Anton Anderson Memorial Tunnel, better known as the Whittier tunnel. This Alaska toll tunnel is 2.5 mile long and connects the port city of Whittier on Prince William Sound to the Seward Highway and Southcentral Alaska.
The tunnel  is used by both automobiles and trains to travel to the Whittier city in Alaska. It allows a single lane of automobile traffic to drive directly over the railroad track area. Automobiles and trains take turns using the tunnel. The Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities operates the tunnel as a highway most of the day during the summer and winter.
It costs 13 dollars for 2-axle vehicles to travel to Whittier.
