The realities of Kinross’ proposed ore haul on public highways

To the editor: With pressure mounting to use Interior Alaska’s highways as industrial ore hauling routes beginning in 2024, I would like to provide recent updates.

I have traveled the highways from Northway to Fairbanks 12 times over the past two winters (October through April) and several times in the snow-free season as well. Let me describe typical scenarios along hilly and winding sections including the lengthy section from Northway to just east of Tok (the Taylor Highway junction) and equally undulating and curving areas northwest of Big Delta and Quartz lake, through Tenderfoot to Salcha.
