While Rezanof Drive West near downtown has been reopened, multiple landslides along Womens Bay are forcing traffic from Bells Flats and beyond to be turned around at the Fairgrounds.
The Alaska State Troopers say more slides are expected between the Coast Guard Base and Bell’s Flats. There is currently no estimate when the road will reopen.
Kodiak Police are recommending people avoid Alder Way because of heavy water runoff. Public Works is on the scene and are rerouting the water. An early report from the KPD said the hillside could be unstable.
Drive with caution and look out for debris and heavy equipment in the road.
The National Weather Service is predicting heavy rain and strong wind to continue through tonight.
KMXT will have updates on the air and on Facebook.com/KMXTKodiak.
