For the past several decades, two months out of every year, truckers in the Canadian tundra carry vital equipment to remote outposts located hundreds of miles north. The mission is to transport thousands of loads before the road disappears.
Continuing this successful series, our truckers will venture to a new road - one that is actually located inside the Arctic Circle. The road is comprised of hills that resemble rollercoasters, journeys over ice, and even includes a 120-mile stretch over open ocean. Over the course of the season, the series will examine the building of the ice road (which includes an ice bridge), and will also follow road maintenance crews as they struggle to keep the road safe and operable in sub zero temperatures.
It is a race against the elements, against time, and against each other. The series will continue to examine this time honored profession that dates back almost a century, often through generations of families.
