Mudslides Slow Traffic on Rezanof, Chiniak Highway

Jay Barrett/KMXT

           Rezanof Drive West was reported blocked by a mud slide near Lash Dock in Womens Bay late this afternoon. It’s the second slide to hamper traffic on the street today. At about 6:15 this morning a mud slide near Pier 2 blocked the westbound lane for about a half hour.

            Likewise, slides on the Chiniak Highway, near the American River have also been reported and the Department of Transportation is responding.

           With more than three-inches of rain in the past 48 hours, the soil along the hillsides is saturated and more slides are likely. The Kodiak Police Department advised motorists to drive carefully and to watch for heavy equipment clearing the road.
