Approximately 281 km of new highway will be built from Hodgson Creek (located approximately 1 km north of Wrigley) to Prohibition Creek (located approximately 28 km southeast of Norman Wells).Bridges for the all-season route have already been constructed, except for the Bear River bridge.  This bridge is already permitted and licensed separately.
