The Fort Chipewyan Winter Road 5,000kg limit is still in effect. Safety is our top priority and teams are actively monitoring for the required ice thickness to increase the weight limit. Official notification will be sent from the RMWB when the limit is increased.

There are no regular services like road patrol, gas stations or cell phone coverage so always be prepared for emergencies. High clearance 4x4 vehicles are recommended.

Workers, equipment and other motorists may also be on the road, so please stay on the right side of the road on hills for enhanced safety.

Please drive to road conditions and obey all posted signage. When passing equipment, reduce speed to 30 km/h for everyone’s safety.

Updates will be provided regularly as required. Check the following sources for the latest information:
