State heading out to inspect bridge near Denali Park

The State will conduct a special inspection of a bridge that’s similar in design and age to the one that collapsed in Minneapolis. The 37-year old Nenana River Bridge at Moody, near Denali Park, is one of 6 deck truss bridges in Alaska. State Department of Transportation (DOT) chief bridge engineer Rich Pratt says Alaska’s five other deck truss bridges, on the Denali and Alaska Highways, the McCarthy Road and on logging roads near Icy Bay, have already been checked in recent months.
