Fort Chipewyan Winter Road open to light vehicles

The winter road to Fort Chipewyan is now open for light vehicles (less than 5,000kg).

The Municipality is reminding you to follow all the traffic rules and the additional risks that are present when using the winter road.

Speeding on the winter road can pose significant risks to the area.

Fast-moving vehicles can build a wave under the ice that can easily damage the road and break ice suddenly when the wave strikes the shoreline, a sandbar or collides with a wave from a vehicle traveling in the opposite direction,” stated the RMWB in a press release.

Stay up-to-date with the winter road hotline (866-743-6111), winter roads webpage, signing up for email alerts, following the RMWB on Facebook and Twitter, or the Pulse line.
