Mining Company Needs Winter Road

Ultimately, the road would be the first-all season road to Prairie Creek in the project’s 50-year history. The first phase of construction, known as the pioneer winter road, would reopen and cut new trails, where designated, along the access road corridor, allowing for acquisition of critical geotechnical data for subsequent road-building campaigns and to walk in key pieces of heavy equipment required for on-site early construction projects in the following summer season.
