Beginning in mid-April, maintenance and operations crews with the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities (ADOT&PF) removed snow, thawed culverts and completed repairs along the 135-mi. (217.3 km) road.

ADOT&PF cautions travelers that there may be delays due to ongoing maintenance activities, including bridge work at Seattle Creek, Denali Highway MP 111.
