(CANTWELL, Alaska) – The Denali Highway will be closed at mile 131, approximately four miles east of Cantwell, for three non-consecutive nights between the evening of Saturday, Sept. 9 and the morning of Thursday, Sept. 14 to allow a contractor to safely install a large box culvert in the roadway.
The road will be closed during the following time periods:
- Saturday, Sept. 9 at 8 p.m. through Sunday, Sept. 10 at 8 a.m.
- Monday, Sept. 11 at 8 p.m. through Tuesday, Sept. 12 at 8 a.m.
- Wednesday, Sept. 13 at 8 p.m. through Thursday, Sept. 14 at 8 a.m.
Between the closures, one lane will be open to traffic until the culvert installation is complete. Once complete, the roadway will be restored to two-lane traffic. Please watch out for flaggers and equipment in the roadway, and use caution when traveling through the construction zone.
This installation is part of a larger project repairing flood damage at several locations along the Denali Highway.
