Because Selawik itself is built on very boggy ground, building and maintaining a road system is a big problem. The folks of Selawik have found novel solutions to their transportation dilemma. All year long, the folks of Selawik get around on ATV's driven on these boardwalks that serve as roads. The boardwalks also carry pedestrian and bike traffic. In the winter, frozen rivers and lakes become highways for their snowmobiles, which can also transport them on branch-marked trails, across the frozen tundra.
