speaking of Snow

History Channel had a great show on the building of the Alaskan highway (oil
can highway) during WW2.
Actually went into the problems with permafrost and other conditions that
met the military vehicles.

Question: Were there modifications made to the dueces and bulldozers and
such to work in those conditions?
If so, what would have been done to keep them from frozen death?

Also, has anyone been on it in the last several years? Sounds like a great
historic drive, and was wondering if there is any remains, musuems, stops
that I could plan for?
