Finnish national road 29 (Finnish: Valtatie 29; Swedish: Riksväg 29) is a highway in Finland between Keminmaa and Tornio. Most of its length is part of European route E8.

Overview[edit]

It is 16 kilometres (10 mi) long and it is the world's northernmost motorway/freeway (i.e. no at-grade crossings), with Alaska Highway 3 in Fairbanks, Alaska being the second northernmost. Road 29 has four lanes. From both ends of the "world's northernmost freeway", both ends of it have a segment of at-grade expressway after them.
