Solid-filled causeways have been used along the Beaufort Sea coastline to support oil and gas drilling operations and have provided maritime access on a shallow coast. The Endicott causeway, located in the Sagavanirktok River delta on Alaska's North Slope, has altered the coastal hydrodynamics that transport sediments across the delta. Alaska’s economy is strongly tied to oil production, with most of the petroleum coming from the Prudhoe Bay oil fields. Deadhorse, the furthest north oil town on the Alaska North Slope, provides support to the oil industry. The Dalton Highway is the only road that connects Deadhorse with other cities in Interior Alaska.
