Construction of Tłı̨chǫ All-Season Road project resumes; residents reminded of construction safety

Yellowknife — May 22, 2020
Public Service Announcement

The Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT) and North Star Infrastructure (NSI) advise that construction of the Tłı̨chǫ All-Season Road (TASR) has resumed.

As a result of construction activities, Tłı̨chǫ residents are advised that the Whatı̀ community access road is temporarily closed beginning at the winter road junction. Crews began mobilizing to the work site on May 15, 2020. Residents are asked to avoid this area until further notice.

The GNWT and NSI understand that this road is used frequently and valued by community members. We thank residents for their patience and understanding.

Infrastructure projects such as TASR will play a significant part in the recovery of the Northwest Territories post-COVID-19 by injecting money into the economy and providing business and employment opportunities for our residents, while delivering the critical infrastructure the NWT needs.
