Tanana River

The Tanana River is formed by the confluence of the Nabesna and Chisana Rivers near Northway. It then flows 440 miles westward to the Yukon River and then into the Bering Sea.

It crosses the Parks Highway at Mile 305.1, where the Nenana River joins it at the town of Nenana. Tugs and barges based in Nenana carry cargo and freight to the Yukon region in the summer months after the ice breakup.
