Parks Highway Traffic Detour in Denali National Park and Preserve
Contact: Kris Fister, (907) 683-9583
Due to the excavation of a large trench across the Parks Highway at Mile 237, near the entrance to the Denali Park Road, travelers will experience a detour beginning at 12:01 a.m. on Monday, October 4 until 6:00 p.m. Friday, October 8. The trench will accommodate piping for the new wastewater treatment facility for the park’s entrance area, which is under construction west of the highway.
