At this moment the Sterling Highway remains open. Travel on the Sterling Hwy from Watson Lake to the Seward Hwy (MP 71-36) is NOT advised.
We have had calls
and see posts from people saying the highway is closed but it is not closed. There is a barrier with the wording "Road Closed" that is being used for a side road and may be confusing to motorists. Thank you for your patience; public safety is the first priority.
There may be long lines as people wait for the
pilot car to shuttle them between mile 71 (Watson Lake) and the
intersection of the Sterling and Seward Highways, mile 36. Please be
prepare to wait; bring food and water and have a full tank of fuel.
THIS WILL BE OUR LAST POST FOR THE NIGHT UNLESS CONDITIONS CHANGE.
