The Yukon Resource Gateway Project will provide the bypass at Carmacks and approximately 650 kilometres of needed upgrades of existing road infrastructure in the Dawson and Nahanni ranges – two key areas of high mineral potential and active mining in Yukon. That includes replacing road surfaces, brdiges, and culverts in the two regions.

In April, the Yukon government reached an agreement with the Little Salmon/Carmacks First Nation for the Carmacks Bypass project, one of the roadways included in the overall project. Project agreements must be in place with the First Nations communities as a stipulation for funding from the federal government.
