I did a quick Google search and found nothing on paving the Dempster, but I did find the planning for the Inuvik to Tuktoyaktuk Highway. :)

I listened to an interview with the mayor of Tuk on CBC yesterday and he alluded to the extension being gravel, no mention of pavement.

Pave it all and while your at it take out all the curves. Do it for all the roads out there. Safer for everyone.

My good mate and I are planning on riding the Dempster next year. For our sake I hope it's good and gravelly! When is the best time of year to head up that way to avoid the mossies and rain?

Well, I would not call it the best road in Canada that's for sure, But it is an adventure to ride it.
