No road construction will take place until AIDEA has completed the pre-construction phase which currently is scheduled through December 31, 2024. Field data collection and input from the SAC committee over the next few years will allow the AAP to refine the design to further protect the environment and subsistence resources.
No. The purpose of the road is to support exploration and the commercial transport of resources, equipment, supplies, and personnel to the Ambler Mining District. While commercial transport of goods and services is not a primary purpose, it may be possible under the same rules of the road as mine users. Personal use such as hunting, fishing, and small-scale mining is prohibited. If it is built, this will not be a State road and will not be open to the general public.
