Traffic is still backed up on the Sterling Highway due to Swan Lake Fire activity and fire equipment working near the highway. However, there are reports that things are moving with pilot cars.
The incident Meteorologist says there is a good chance most of the smoke from today will lie low around Cooper Landing tonight and in the morning so plan accordingly. Always drive with headlights on in smoky conditions
Below are pictures of what's been going on near the road to give you a better idea of what is causing the delay.
