Snow creates slippery conditions in Turnagain Pass

Posted: October 25, 2011 - 11:56am  |  Updated: October 25, 2011 - 12:13pm

Although it’s just raining in the central Kenai Peninsula area, full winter driving conditions hit Turnagain Pass on the Seward Highway early Tuesday, officials said.

Alaska State Troopers spokeswoman Megan Peters said motorists should watch for wind, snow and icy roads if they are traveling along the highway.

“If they are planning on going up or down the Seward Highway, people should make sure their cars are prepared for winter driving conditions and they are in the mood to practice their best driving behaviors and patience because traffic is down to 30 miles per hour in some locations,” she said.

No crashes on the pass have been reported as of 11:30 a.m., according to an Associated Press report.

“It is that time of the year — people should always be prepared for adverse driving conditions this time of year in Alaska,” Peters said.
