Benefits to Canadians

There are many access roads intersecting the highway within a relatively short distance, resulting in risk for travellers. The proposed improvements will reduce the risk of collision and traffic delays at these entry and access points.

Information for motorists

The Alaska Highway will remain fully operational as the work at the project site is performed.

The average peak-hour volume varies throughout the day.

Morning peak hour

Afternoon peak hour

The volume can change at different times of the year. During construction season, there is a significant increase in traffic at these entry and access points.

We will notify the public in advance of any traffic delays or disruptions due to construction by issuing public notices. Information will also be shared through our social media channels and distributed to stakeholders for further broadcasting.
