"Winter roads."  Surprisingly common in the American and Canadian arctic,
though I have no doubt it has significance in other Arctic circle countries
as well, and probably a rare example of where a road might be on a body of
water without any sort of bridge or ford at all on the map.  Also rather
amusing to be following such a road on the map up a river and discover that
the photo was taken during the summer as evidenced by a power boat towing a
water ski (still that just *had* to be cold! We are talking a waterway that
drains to the Arctic ocean after all!) down it!
