THE $299-MILLION INUVIK TO TUKTOYAKTUK HIGHWAY is history in the making.
It will, for the first time, connect Canada from coast to coast to coast and change the future of Canada’s North, bringing huge regional economic and social benefits to the people living in the Northwest Territories. This 137km all-weather, gravel-packed highway will be built on top of the frozen tundra and requires an estimated 5.8 million cubic metres of rock material to be moved from the quarry to the road site. Slated for completion by 2018, it will create up to 1,000 jobs over its four-winter construction period. Check out the videos below.
