Hwy 33 Hwy 36

Alberta Provincial Highway No. 35,[1] which forms the majority of Alberta's portion of the Mackenzie Highway, is a north–south highway in northwest Alberta, Canada.

From the south, Highway 35 begins at its intersection with Highway 2, approximately 4 km (2.5 mi) north of the Town of Grimshaw, Alberta and ends at Alberta's boundary with the Northwest Territories. It continues on as Northwest Territories Highway 1. It is one of only two highway-grade roads connecting the NWT with a province (the other being in BC).

Construction of Highway 35 originally began prior to World War II, but the project was abandoned at the outbreak of war. Construction resumed in the early 1960s and was completed to Hay River, Northwest Territories.
