Governments of Canada and Northwest Territories support study for all-season road from Wrigley to the Dempster Highway

Canadian Northern Economic Development Agency – A new study to determine the potential for an all-season road connecting Wrigley to the Dempster Highway in the Northwest Territories will receive support thanks to investments by the Canadian Northern Economic Development Agency (CanNor) and the Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT). The federal contribution was made possible through Canada’s Economic Action Plan. The territorial contribution reflected support given by Members of the 16th Legislative Assembly on February 25, 2009 for the building of the Mackenzie Valley Highway to the Arctic Coast … The joint contributions will support a project by the GNWT‘s Department of Transportation (DOT) that will help determine the feasibility of constructing an all-weather road through the Mackenzie Valley from Wrigley to the Dempster Highway near Inuvik. The project is expected to take three years to complete.
