New grader station to be built in Carmacks

The Government of Yukon is replacing the current, 50-year-old Carmacks grader station with a new, more efficient building this summer. The facility will support the highway crews who maintain the North Klondike Highway and Campbell Highway near the community. The new grader station will include four equipment bay doors, storage space and additional work space. The replacement is estimated at $9 million and is slated for completion for summer 2019.

Replacing the Carmacks grader station ensures workers have a space that’s modern and large enough for them to do their jobs more effectively and efficiently. This upgrade supports the people who are out there every day ensuring that all of us can get to where we need to go.
