Denali Highway now open to the public

Posted: June 7, 2013 - 12:03am

FAIRBANKS — The Denali Highway is now open to through traffic from Cantwell, on the Parks Highway, to Paxson, on the Richardson Highway.

The Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities usually opens the 135-mile Denali Highway by May 15. This year, the opening was delayed due to uncommon spring weather, including heavy snow storms and cold temperatures.

In a release, ADOTPF urged drivers to use extra caution and visit 511.alaska.gov or call 511 for the latest road conditions before traveling the Denali Highway.
