The Steese Highway has been closed near Eagle Summit Friday for the second time in two weeks due to blowing and drifting snow.
The Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities’ road-conditions website announced the closure, between closed avalanche gates at Mile 101 and Mile 116, at about 4:30 p.m. Friday.
AST spokesperson Megan Peters says no vehicle accidents have been reported in the area of the closure Friday.
The Steese’s avalanche gates were also closed on Jan. 31 after poor conditions.
