The town of Delta Junction is located about 100 miles south of Fairbanks, Alaska.  The Big Delta is located at the intersection of the Delta and Tanana Rivers.  Delta Junction is technically the end of the Alaska Highway.  Delta Junction, Alaska has a very small population of just under 1000.  This is very small for the Lower 48 but in Alaska you might as well call it a city.  The reason its called Delta Junction is because in World War II the Americans helped support the Soviet Union with weapons, airplanes, and supplies into the Far East of Russia.  In order for this to happen, they Alaska Highway was built from an existing road in Dawson Creek, British Columbia with the Richardson Highway in Alaska which almost equaled 1,500 miles.
