Highways and Public Works Minister and MLA for Riverdale North Nils Clarke made the following statement on behalf of the Yukon Liberal Caucus:
“The Government of Yukon, the Yukon Liberal Caucus, and the City of Whitehorse want to hear from Whitehorse residents about potential improvements to some of the city’s busiest intersections. Our government has partnered with the City of Whitehorse on the HART: Combined Intersection Upgrades project and is soliciting feedback from the public about potential improvements to the Range Road and Two Mile Hill Road and Alaska Highway and Hamilton Boulevard / Two Mile Hill Road intersections. (In HART, the H is for Hamilton Boulevard, A for Alaska Highway, R for Range Road and T for Two Mile Hill.)
“Using input from technical analysis and these community and stakeholder consultations, the City of Whitehorse and the Yukon government’s project teams will develop a design that meets the two governments’ goals and objectives and best serves Yukoners.
“Yukoners can participate in the engagement by visiting https://www.engagewhitehorse.ca/hart before July 5th. The Yukon Liberal Government and City of Whitehorse are looking for a range of voices that will address community members’ concerns and priorities and we hope all interested Yukoners will participate.
“There will also be a public webinar on June 28 from 6-7:30pm where attendees can communicate directly with the project team, ask questions, and provide feedback. Interested Yukoners can register for the webinar by visiting https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/hart-combined-intersection-upgrades-project-public-information-session-tickets-643176085987. A recording will be made available online for anyone who is not able to attend.
“The Yukon Liberal Caucus is committed to engaging with Yukoners as we develop policies and priorities across the territory. As part of my mandate letter commitment from Premier Pillai, our team will continue to foster a respectful, inclusive, collaborative working relationship with stakeholders, First Nations, municipalities, and Yukoners themselves.”
