FAQ

Currently the AAP is in the Pre-Construction phase of the project, completing necessary studies to support early design of the proposed road and ensure the minimization of environmental impacts. Information from the Subsistence Advisory Committee (SAC) will also be used to further protect the environment and subsistence resources. Construction will not begin until AIDEA receives financial commitments to cover the road's construction and operations.
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.

A recent article by the AK Headlamp provides further information about the private nature of the proposed road.
