Work to improve the Dyea Flats road began on May 9, 2016 as part of a project administered by the Federal Highway Administration to improve the NPS owned portion of the road and the public access between the Slide Cemetery and the Lost Lake Trailhead. Local contractor Hunz & Hunz Enterprises whose bid offer was accepted to perform the work will continue work on the project. Weather temporarily halted the project in December.
