comment What is the difference between “am Weg” and “auf dem Weg”?
1) if it were the clear, the original question would probably never have come up. 2) just because it is not in use in your neck of the german woods doesn't mean it's not in use anywhere. "der schlüssel liegt am kastel" as well as "ich bin am weg zu dir" is quite common in austria, colloquial or not.

@deceze: be that as it may, you are still muddling the issue by comparing a non-contraction with a contraction and you should state that more clearly. btw, dwb.uni-trier.de/Projekte/WBB2009/DWB/… is a good reference for am as a contraction for "an dem."

comment What is the difference between “am Weg” and “auf dem Weg”?
this hurts. "am" is a contraction for both "auf dem" and "an dem" and you explain the difference between those two and not between "am" and "auf dem." You can verify this by substituting "der Weg" with "die Straße" (neither "auf der" nor "an der" have a similar contraction). The contraction might be more or less in use for both "auf" and "an," depending on dialect (cf. splattne's answer).
