Hay River, Northwest Territories
Hay River is the Northern terminus of the North American railway grid. It is the site of an intermodal terminal, where cargo destined for more northerly communities is transferred to barges to be further shipped by water. After the Spring ice breakup the Mackenzie River is navigable, and provides a transportation link to the Arctic Ocean. A fleet of tugboats based in Hay River serves much of the Western Arctic.
