Dempster Highway Completion doc

Nov 15 is the projected completion date for the Dempster extension road from Inuvik to Tuktoyaktuk NWT, very exciting. It seems the road is complete, they are just compacting and doing some painting of bridges, so it will be ready to test next Spring.

Who will be first to do that run on a Motorcycle I wonder?

Can't wait to see it finished. Obviously they have to as they won't be building another ice road.

Now there's a great excuse/reason to buy a new bike.

I don't think I'll be the first. But one summer, I'm driving back to my hometown of Yellowknife, and while I'm that far north, you bet I'm gonna do the Dempster and drive all the way to Tuk! (I've actually visited Inuvik and Tuk multiple times, but not for decades, and always by air. It'll be fun to actually RIDE to those places!)

Throw the missing "l" in there while you're at it.

From what I understand Mike (guy on Honda Ruckus) had made the before road opened by following crew. The bridges were already built an road connected through in April, they were just working on embankments and putting drain pipes. Gotta respect his social engineering skills but he did help road crew to plug tire and they took him for a ride.
