A proposed 220-mile industrial access road would cross over one hundred rivers and streams, interfere with subsistence lifestyles of rural Alaskans, and travel into Gates of the Arctic National Park and Preserve. Sound like a bad idea? We think so, too.

In December 2014, Alaska’s newly appointed governor Bill Walker cut funding for this proposal and other mega-projects throughout the state.

Unfortunately, in October 2015 Governor Walker opened up funding for an environmental review of the proposal, resurfacing this threat.

NPCA is working to prevent construction of this expensive, unnecessary, and damaging road, which won’t benefit park visitors or local communities.
