Officials Unsure When Richardson Highway Will Reopen

By | January 29, 2014 - 11:14 am

The state Transportation Department now says they don’t know when the flooded highway through Keystone Canyon outside of Valdez will be passable again.

Water dammed up behind an avalanche continues to go down slowly and a video camera is being installed to monitor it.

They hope to have avalanche areas above that cleared soon but caution anyone traveling that part of the Richardson Highway once it is re-operned to beware of the danger of more avalanches and watch out for flaggers.
