Richardson Highway washed out at Bear Creek, south of Delta Junction


The Richardson Highway at Milepost 233.5 is closed due to flooding at Bear Creek, south of Delta Junction, where the road has been washed out. The Alaska Department of Transportation crews are en route but the road is impassable. “This closure will remain in effect for 12-24 hours while our crews work to make the necessary repairs for the road to reopen,” DOT said in a social media post.

  1. Looks like it’s washed out previously. Maybe time to replace the entire bridge before another disaster.
