(No more) Ice Road Truckers?

Interesting story via Canadian Geographic that there is a plan to replace the famous ice road between Inuvik and Tuktoyaktuk.

I remember the Tuktoyaktuk peninsula for its famous Pingos, as taught in the old Cambridge 'A' level spec back in the 80's and 90's...

This road is being replaced by an all-year-round road. The local tourist agency is suggesting that this is a 'last chance to drive' the road, which is described as one of the world's great experiences. This is a changing landscape, and one that I would love to visit at some point.
