Officials Urge Anchorage Residents to Stay Off Roads

State transportation officials are urging motorists in the Alaska’s largest city to stay home if they can so roads can be cleared as another winter storm blasts Anchorage on Friday.

DOT officials say crews can better manage snow removal if people aren’t driving on the streets.

It says resources are being sent to Anchorage from around the state to help remove the snow.

The storm is predicted to drop 6-10 inches of snow in Anchorage, with up to 10-15 inches on the upper hillside.
