Epic Bridge to Connect America with Russia, So You Can Road trip from NYC to Moscow
A road trip stretching from New York City all the way to London could be possible if Russia’s plans work out to build a mega highway connecting Russia’s easternmost border with Alaska’s westernmost border.
The idea has been speculated for years, but the Russian Railways’ President Vladimir Yakunin finally proposed plans on March 23 calling it the “Trans-Eurasian Belt Development” (TEPR).
So what does a road trip from New York City to London entail exactly?
Beginning from New York City, the route would go across the northern border of the United States with the following scenic pit stops:
• Allegheny National Forest, Pennsylvania
• Cedar Point Amusement park in Sandusky, Ohio
• Michigan City, along lake Michigan in Indiana
• Chicago, Illinois
• Minneapolis, Minnesota
After driving through part of North Dakota, the route crosses over the border into Saskatchewan, Canada and passes through the following Canadian attractions:
• Calgary, Alberta
• Banff National Park
• Edmonton, Alberta
• Northern Rocky Mountains Provincial Park, British Columbia
• Kluane National Park and Reserve of Canada, Yukon
The route would then pass over the border again, but this time into Alaska. The nearest city to the proposed bridge right now is Fairbanks and if you’re wondering how far you have come at this point, that’s a total of 4,244 miles, which would approximately take a little over three days of driving straight through.
