By the mid-1980s, the Yukon section had been improved, being wide and straight, while the B.C. section (which has no official highway number) was narrow, winding, with some less than optimum grades. Most of the section in B.C. runs along the eastern shore of Atlin Lake.
By 2000, the B.C. section had been improved and partially paved, while there have been complaints about the Yukon section.
From Atlin, there are area roads both to the east and the south.
