Canada Is Building An Arctic Highway

Canada is about to do something that's never been done before in history. 

This year the government is expected to complete construction on what they call the Arctic Highway.

In honor of Canada's 150th anniversary, you will be able to drive all the way to the top of Canada's mainland all year! 

The road will take you through a wild, frozen landscape unlike anything you've ever seen. The project is expected to be complete in November 2017. 

It has taken four years of construction to build the 137 kilometers road to connect Inuvik to Tuktoyaktuk, and now for the first time ever, Canada's coasts will be entirely connected.
