Amalga Harbor road closures due to bridge replacements

The Alaska Department of Transportation & Public Facilities (DOT&PF) will be replacing two bridges on Amalga Harbor Road from Sept. 26 to Oct. 9.

Drivers planning to access Amalga Harbor via Glacier Highway will experience temporary delays daily from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. In addition, Amalga Harbor Road will be closed to public access from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 5, and Monday, Oct. 8.

DOT&PF will be placing temporary Acrow bridges, a brand of prefabricated, modular steel bridge, over two sections of Peterson Creek along Amalga Harbor Road. Ongoing bridge inspection and maintenance has determined that the current bridges will not meet load requirements for DOT&PF winter maintenance vehicles. Plans are in place to install permanent bridges in 2013.

DOT&PF thanks drivers in advance for their patience and understanding while road work continues. The department asks that drivers be alert to flaggers and new traffic patterns, heavy equipment and to please use extreme caution when approaching and traveling through the work zone.
