The Alaska Department of Transportation & Public Facilities (ADOT&PF) will end seasonal maintenance, including snow and ice removal, on the Denali Highway, Taylor Highway, and the Road to Tanana, in October.

ADOT&PF does not maintain these highways through the winter. The department encourages drivers to remember that travel on a non-maintained highway during the winter is extremely risky.

Maintenance on the Denali Highway ended Oct. 1. Crews will begin opening the 135-mi. (217 km) Denali Highway in late April. Eight personnel will work for about three weeks to open the road from both sides, at the Cantwell junction on the Parks Highway to the Paxson Lodge on the Richardson Highway. The road is usually open by May 15.

Maintenance on the Taylor Highway, which runs from Tetlin Junction to Eagle, will end Oct. 13 and will resume in early April. In April, a five-person maintenance crew will begin plowing snow and ice to re-open the 160-mi. (257.5 km) road over about a four-week period. The border crossing on the Top of The World Highway closed earlier this month and will remain closed until next May.

Maintenance on the Road to Tanana, which runs from Manley to the banks of the Yukon River, will end Oct. 1. The road will be opened in early spring in coordination with the city of Tanana's Yukon ice road construction efforts, enabling freight to be transported to Tanana.
