  • The things scary movies are made of should have stopped here. Gteat experience no more different in price than a regular toll. Great structure.  more »
  • If you want to go to Whittier, you have to go through the tunnel. Price is a little steep, $13 round trip, so I wouldn't pay it just to see the tunnel. But, if you want to go to Whittier, the tunnel i...  more »

  • If you're fascinated with tunnels then you'll love the Anton Anderson Memorial Tunnel. The Anton Anderson Memorial Tunnel provides rail and road access to Whittier. The Alaska Railroad train shares the same tunnel with vehicles, but don't worry this is very safe. There is a tunnel schedule that revolves around 45 minutes. When a train arrives it has priority, but otherwise traffic flows very well in each direction. There is plenty of light inside the tunnel to take video or pictures. The smell of rock and water is unique, so drive with the windows down.
  • I went through this amazing example of engineering and organization on the Alaska Railroad following a cruise that terminated in Whittier. Everyone takes their turn: trains for a certain time, highway traffic for a certain time. Unforgettable!
  • Fun one way tunnel takes 5 min each way. 11$
  • Terrifying. Not well made. Long waits to go through one lane tunnel. And the town was not worth the $13 to get to.
  • Amazing tunnel and history. Google it!
