Whitehorse corridor draft functional plan

The Whitehorse corridor extends along the Alaska Highway from just south of the Klondike Highway turnoff to Carcross, to just north of the turnoff to Dawson.

This corridor is an important part of Yukon’s transportation network and serves a significant portion of Yukon’s population.

Due to continued growth in traffic along the corridor, the Yukon government is developing a long-term plan to improve safety, traffic flow and capacity.

This draft plan is available for public review until May 15, 2015.
