British Columbia Roads - BC 97

BC 97

BC 97 is numbered as the extension of US 97, which is notable for having been theoretically numbered in Alaska. AASHTO had conditionally approved it on the theory that the intervening territories (Yukon, Northwest Territories) also adopt that number. Well, only BC went along, like it did with all the other US highways at its border, so US 97 never materialized.
