Inuvik-Tuk Highway Under Construction

The $299 million 140 km all weather road between Inuvik and Tuktoyaktuk is under construction  and an estimated 400 people will be eventually employed in the project.  Completion of the road is slated for August of 2018 (five years), and will see the completion of a long held dream to connect all of Canada—not just east and west, but also north.

Local companies  involved in the construction are:

  • E. Gruben’s Transport – Tuk-based company
  • Kavik Stantec – Inuvialuit-based company
  • Kiggiak EBA –  Inuvialuit-based company
