A portion of the Sterling Highway will be closed from March 11 to March 18, according to the Alaska Department of Transportation (DOT).
The highway will be closed at Mile Post 106 just north of Kasilof as crews work to replace the Coal Creek Culvert. Drivers will have to use Kalifornsky Beach Road as a detour while this portion of the highway is closed, according to the DOT’s website.
This road closure and culvert repair is part of a larger project to widen the shoulders of Sterling highway from Mile Post 97 to Mile Post 118. The project will also install large-diameter culverts at Slikok Tributary, Crooked Creek and Clam Gulch.
All construction related to this project is scheduled to be finished by October of this year, according to the public notice.
Anyone residing in construction zones who may require special accommodations can contact the DOT Highway Construction Engineer at 907-269-0450. For all other questions, call the DOT hotline at 907-262-1042.
