JUNEAU - A study on avalanches on Mount Juneau has been approved.
The Juneau Assembly gave the go ahead Monday night to appropriate $34,500 in state funds for the study by the Swiss Snow Institute for Snow and Avalanche Research.
City Manager Rod Swope says the study will lead to creation of new avalanche zone maps.
He says the study also will determine if avalanche warning sensors should be installed.
