Of the total crossings, more than 1,475 were transport trucks and at least 725 were private vehicles, which carried close to 1,200 occupants.

The data was collected at Enterprise and Fort McPherson.

The approximate 1,925 crossings at Enterprise accounted for most of the data.

Around 1,700 people arrived in the NWT by air at the four main airports between March 27 and May 19.

During that period, the Yellowknife Airport saw 1,087 people arrive, 482 people came through the Inuvik airport, 75 arrived at Fort Smith and 57 at Hay River.

It was not clear from the data if the arrivals were residents or visitors from outside the NWT.
