Welcome to our 2010 Conference on Arctic Ice and Snow Roads – Advancements and Future Needs. Arctic transportation networks are critical to resource development on the North Slope. Ice and snow roads are used for all aspects of resource development, including maintaining pipeline infrastructure in current oil fields and exploration in emerging oil and gas fields across the North Slope. This conference has been brought together by a cooperative effort from leading state and federal agencies, industry, and professional societies. Some of the topics covered will include best management practices, current research projects, safety, techniques to extend ice road operating seasons and other topics of interest to all of those interested in Arctic transportation and resulting resource development efforts. Our conference goal is to bring together industry, professionals, construction firms, regulators, community representatives and NGO’s to exchange information, find solutions for common problems and identify future needs. Please Register Early as space will be limited (150 total seating) for those who wish to attend the meeting. We will also have a portion of the meeting available online for those who cannot be in Anchorage. We appreciate all of our conference Sponsors! Please be sure to visit with them during the conference.
