Avalanches, washouts close stretches of road, AlCan

JUNEAU (AP) — Avalanches and washouts are closing stretches of highway in Canada that could affect Alaska motorists.

The Alaska transportation department reports the Klondike Highway from Skagway to the U.S.-Canada border is closed due to avalanches. Washouts on the Alaska Highway in Canada have resulted in closures between Junction 37 and Teslin, on the southern end of the Yukon Territory, and between Haines Junction and Destruction Bay.

It wasn't immediately clear just how long the closures will remain in effect, though the department expects the closures on the Alaska Highway to last at least through the weekend.

Travelers are urged to check Yukon Territory road conditions at www.511yukon.ca .
