Ice Road To Poplar Hill First Nation

Ice Road To Poplar Hill First Nation

You can’t get to Poplar Hill First Nation by road until winter. The number of water crossings make regular road construction prohibitively expensive. But when Canadian winter freezes the waters, an ice road becomes a workable solution. Every January for the last decade, Moncrief Construction has built the ice road connecting some four hundred people of the Poplar Hill First Nation to the outside world. Using snow machines, snow plows, and our Bombardiers, we turn the frozen barrier into a frozen highway. Every spring the road melts into the impassible. Every January, we build it again.
