Canol Road (Yukon Highway 6) - beskrivelse

The 513-mile-/825-km-long Canol Road (Yukon Highway 6) was built to provide access to oil fields at Norman Wells, NWT, on the Mackenzie River. Conceived by the U.S. War Dept. during WWII, the Canol (Canadian Oil) Road and a 4-inch-diameter pipeline were constructed from Norman Wells, NWT, through Macmillan Pass, past Ross River, to Johnson’s Crossing on the Alaska Highway. From there the pipeline carried oil to a refinery at Whitehorse. Only about 1 million barrels of oil were pumped to Whitehorse before the war ended in 1945 and the Canol Project was abandoned. The Canol Road was declared a National Historic Site in 1990.

The Canol Road between Johnson’s Crossing on the Alaska Highway and Ross River on the Campbell Highway (South Canol Road) and between Ross River and the YT–NWT border ( North Canol Road) is open to summer traffic. It is maintained to minimum standards. Services are available only at Johnson’s Crossing and Ross River.
