YELLOWKNIFE (February 1, 2018) – The Department of Infrastructure advises of delays, lasting up to one hour, on Highways 1 and 3 on Friday, February 2, 2018.

Approaching traffic will be stopped at pull outs or wide locations as the loads travel northbound along the route and held until the three loads have passed. Wait times are expected to be between 30 minutes and an hour in duration.
