Skagway – Construction activities to improve the Dyea flats road have stopped for the season due to winter weather. The road to Dyea flats and the road to the Lost Lake Trailhead remain open and accessible to winter traffic. 

The contract is being administered by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). Local contractor Hunz & Hunz Enterprises whose bid offer was accepted to perform the work did not complete the project by the scheduled September 1st, 2016 completion date and worked as long as weather permitted. Details of the project for spring of 2017 have not yet been determined. 

Work to improve the Dyea Flats road began on May 9 as part of a Federal Highway Administration funded project to improve the NPS owned portion of the road and the public access between the Slide Cemetery and the Lost Lake Trailhead. The project improvements include elevating the road surface, increasing drainage, replacing culverts, and adding widened turn-outs for safe passing lanes.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this project. Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park strives to maintain exceptional visitor and public services, including safe public access to the trails and resources of Dyea. Please feel free to contact the park with any comments or questions regarding this project.
