(PALMER, Alaska) – The Department of Transportation & Public Facilities will reopen Hatcher Pass Road on the east side today at 6 p.m. The department has completed clearing avalanche debris that covered the road last week.
Alaska State Parks will concurrently open Hatcher Pass to snowmobiles. Due to additional significant snowfall and a stabilized snowpack, the public is urged to remain cautious while traveling in mountainous areas as avalanche danger still persists.
The Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities oversees 237 airports, 10 ferries serving 35 communities, more than 5,600 miles of highway and 776 public facilities throughout the state of Alaska. The mission of the department is to “Keep Alaska Moving through service and infrastructure.”
