Theoretically speaking, this project can still be done even today. However, the question might naturally be whether doing this is actually going to be worth it. After all, this area is very sparsely populated and thus I don't think that a lot of people are actually going to be eager to travel in that direction. The only possible exception could be travel by high-speed trains.If it wasn’t for ww1, there was a plan for Russia to finance and connect Russia to Alaska by rail. If my links work.
