Conditions on the Denali Park Road

The map below illustrates which parts of the park road are open to private vehicles (thick green line) and, in summer, to bus traffic (thin black line). Red indicates sections of road closed. Icons also indicate which park campgrounds are open.


2019 Summer Road Work and Construction

Road work will commence as early as May 15, and last the entire summer season. The work will occur between the park entrance (Mile 0) and Park Headquarters (Mile 3.4) on the Denali Park Road (check out our maps to orient yourself to the Denali Park Road). Denali only has one road, so late-night travelers and visitors staying in park campgrounds should plan for the following:

  • Nights-only

    Road work will occur from 8 pm to 8 am only. This may mean some road work noise is audible to campers in Riley Creek Campground when the contractor is working on the road near the park entrance and Riley Creek.
  • Delays
    Between the park entrance and Mile 3.4, the following could occur at any time:
    • 8 pm to 10 pm: Delays of 5 minutes
    • 10 pm to 5 am: Delays of up to 15 minutes, with some periods of total closure (see below)
    • 5 am to 8 am: Delays of 5 minutes.
  • Closures
    11:30 pm to 1 am and 2 am to 3:30 am: The contractor may close the road entirely to non-emergency traffic during these periods of time if they need to do so for their work. Please try to avoid traveling the Denali Park Road between the entrance and Park Headquarters during these windows.
