Accident closes Sterling Highway

Posted: November 11, 2012 - 3:49pm  |  Updated: November 11, 2012 - 5:03pm

Update: The highway has been partially reopened. 

The Sterling Highway has been closed at Milepost 39 due to a single-vehicle accident. Alaska State Troopers are on scene, working to reopen the highway as soon as possible.

Troopers could have a single lane thoroughfare open within an hour, said troopers’ spokesperson Megan Peters.

At 1:30 p.m., troopers received a call regarding an elderly couple who had slid into a guardrail and off the roadway, Peters said. The couple drove a Ford F150, which did not rollover as it left the roadway.

Investigators are currently mapping the scene, a measure generally taken when an accident results in serious injury or death, Peters said.

The scene of the accident is before the intersection of the Seward and Sterling Highways, so travelers headed south on the Kenai Peninsula can except a delay.
