Project Highlights

The winter road is open and operated for three to four months of the year and is vital to the life of Fort Chipewyan community as it provides the only overland link to Fort McMurray. As the seasonal road conditions are constantly changing, Associated Engineering has provided an integral role to assist the Municipality in a successful and on-schedule completion of the project.
