PARKS HWY UPDATE: Pilot car staging for the McKinley Fire's southern perimeter moved to Milepost 76. Expect delays.

Pilot car staging on the Parks Highway for the McKinley Fire’s southern perimeter has been moved up to Milepost 76, near Kashwitna Lake. Motorists should continue to expect significant delays as pilot cars escort one-lane traffic between Mileposts 76 and 99. Motorists should also be prepared for sudden highway closures depending upon fire activity.

Decisions concerning any future movement of the staging point will be considered on a daily basis by Alaska State Troopers and cooperating agencies based on fire status and public safety.

The Alaska State Troopers, the Division of Forestry, and other cooperating agencies appreciate the patience the public has shown as we work together on this wildfire event.
