ANCHORAGE, Alaska (KTUU) — The Dept. of Administration announced Saturday evening that all state offices in Anchorage, Eagle River, Wasilla, and Palmer will be closed for business on Monday.

The Dept. of Transportation is requesting all state agencies keep employees in those areas home on Monday if possible, citing extensive damage on the Glenn Highway between Eklutna and Mirror Lake.

"Employees with the departments of Corrections, Public Safety, DOT&PF, and Health and Social Services that deal with public safety and/or 24-hour facilities should follow the directions from their commissioner’s office about reporting to work," the order says. "Employees with the Department of Military and Veterans Affairs who are assigned to JBER, and state employees working in the State Emergency Operations Center, should report to work."

This is a developing story.
