Project Description Reports
Project description reports are an essential step in completing the engineering and environmental work required to complete an environmental assessment for this road.
The Department worked with land-claim groups and organizations along the proposed highway alignment to provide a summary of information required to proceed to the environmental review phase of the project. This partnership approach ensured that local knowledge contributed significantly to the final reports and that the concerns and interests of local people were taken into account. Research for these reports included field work, consultations, and traditional knowledge.
Total funding of $8 million for this project was cost-shared 50/50 between the GNWT and the Canada Northern Economic Development Agency (CanNor).
