The Government of Yukon and the Ross River Dena Council (RRDC) have reached an agreement in principle for the North Canol Road and Campbell Highway components of the Yukon Resource Gateway Project.
“This agreement in principle with the Ross River Dena Council will provide valuable capacity and economic opportunities to the community and is a tremendous step forward for reconciliation. We look forward to finalizing this agreement and working together with the community to improve this critical infrastructure to enable mineral industry development,” said Yukon’s Minister of Energy, Mines and Resources Ranj Pillai.
Ross River Dena Council is collaborating with the Government of Yukon on the development, environmental and regulatory aspects of the two road component upgrades. The work will include bridge replacement and safety improvements on North Canol Road and construction and resurfacing of kilometre 354.9 to kilometre 414.4 of the Robert Campbell Highway.
