The ice road between Dettah and Yellowknife is open, right on time.

Over the last two decades, on average, the road has opened on Dec. 24. The Department of Infrastructure announced the punctual green-lighting of the shortcut between the communities with a tweet Friday morning.

Residents are encouraged to visit the GNWT Highway Conditions Map for the most up-to-date road conditions.

  1. Great that the road is open.
    Drove and was disappointed to see garbage on it already (cans and plastics).
    What is wrong with people? A very pristine drive, not that long – can’t you take your garbage home and dispense of it there?
