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.

Cold temperatures limit trees from growing at high elevation in Denali. Warmer temperatures, however, have led to woody vegetation growing at ever-higher elevations. Treeline changes are a conspicuous sign of climate change.
