Yukon Port Access Study

Yukon Port Access Study

The project included a review of road and rail access from prime mineral sites in the Yukon to six candidate sea ports in Alaska and British Columbia for the export of minerals and natural resources, and the import of supplies and market produce. All-weather road conditions together with projected volumes of truck traffic, and the access conditions at the candidate ports were assessed. The resource dock facilities at the Port of Skagway were selected as the optimum location for a Yukon port and an assessment was made of costs to support the port and its operations.
