This would be a total fail. Im not saying it couldnt be done, but WHY. There would not be many places to stop and rest, unless they built floating gas stations and truck stops. Weather would be a huge factor, those waves get mighty big out there. And who the heck wants to blow a thousand dollars in gas, when that could easily be used to buy a cheap plane ticket. DING DING, now I know why all these planes keep crashing, its a way to sway the public away from aviation, and onto a non existent highway. Sarcasim. LOL

The points everyone has raised above makes me wonder what resources could be trucked from Alaska to Russia (or vice versa) that would make the road worthwhile financially.

They would be better making it a tunnel that goes underground - no bad weather, no reduced visibility, no black ice or need to clear snow off the roads. Trondheim in Norway has the Helltunnelen which in some places runs underneath entire mountains.
