Highway 10, more commonly known as the Inuvik-Tuktoyaktuk Highway or ITH, is a road between Inuvik and Tuktoyaktuk in Canada's Northwest Territories. It is the "first all-weather road to Canada's Arctic Coast".

The concept of the highway had been considered for decades; however, final approval was not until 2013, with construction beginning in 2014. It was officially opened to the public on November 15, 2017 and allows Tuktoyaktuk and the Arctic Coast to be accessed by vehicles year-round.

For more information on the project, please visit the Inuvik Tuktoyaktuk Mackenzie Valley Highway website.

Highway conditions are available on the GNWT Department of Infrastructure website.
