Map of Mackenzie Valley Highway

Map of western Northwest Territories, indentifying the most northern segment of the Mackenzie Valley Highway. The map illustrates the proposed all-weather highway, the proposed construction of bridges, marine resupply routes, all-weather highways, winter roads, highway ferries and highway numbers.

The proposed all-weather highway is indicated to start at Wrigley, go north through Tulita, Norman Wells, Fort Good Hope, Inuvik and end in Tuktoyaktuk.

There are two proposed bridges for construction located to the north and south of Fort Simpson.

Two marine resupply routes start at the southerly border of the territory and Port Providence, then meet at Fort Simpson. The route travels north through Wrigley, Tulita, Norman Wells, Fort Good Hope, Tsiigehtchic, then follows a river to Aklavik and continues north to the ocean.

There are three all-weather highways. Highway 7 starts at the southern border of the territory and passes through Fort Liard and Nathanni Butte. Highway 1 starts from the eastern side of the territory, passes through Port Providence and intersects with Highway 7. The route continues north through Fort Simpson and ends in Wrigley. Highway 8 starts in northern Yukon, travels east to Fort McPherson and Tsiigehtchic, then continues north and ends in Inuvik.

The winter roads connect Trout Lake to Highway 1, Jean Marie River to Highway 1, Deline to the marine resupply route and proposed all-weather highway, Colville Lake to the marine resupply route and proposed all-weather highway, and Aklavik to the marine resupply route and proposed all-weather highway.

The two highway ferries are located at Tsiigehtchic and northeast of Fort McPherson.
