Site of Old Man Camp (mi 107.4)

This Level Parking area was once the site of Old Man Camp, a former pipeline construction camp. There were a total of 31 construction camps operating during the construction of the Trans Alaska Pipeline from 1974 – 1977. These camps were temporary facilities to house the thousands of workers who build the pipeline. Depending on the location, these camps held anywhere from 250 to 3500 people. The workers called these camps “skinny cities” considering that the “city” was 800 miles long, but only a few hundred feet wide.
