Whitehorse Corridor - "What We Heard"

From March 16 to May 15, 2015 the public review of the draft functional plan for the Whitehorse corridor of the Alaska Highway took place.


The “What We Heard” document summarizing the survey responses and comments received during the 60 day review period is now available.


The document highlights areas where Yukon government will further examine potential refinements prior to completing the plan.


A range of opinions were expressed, and Yukon government thanks all those who participated in the development of this important long-term plan.
