There is a two hundred and twenty mile road proposed to cross the tundra of the western Brooks Range, and it will take a half a billion dollars to build it. The currently roadless Gates of the Arctic National Park will no longer be roadless. One hundred and sixty-one currently free-flowing rivers will be compromised. Thousands of acres of wilderness and centuries of timelessness that exist will be irreversibly changed in a matter of a few years. If this concerns you, as it does us, we urge you to join the Brooks Range Council and take action.
