Snow slows opening of road into Denali

Posted: Tuesday, May 30, 2000

ANCHORAGE (AP) -- Road crews at Denali National Park and Preserve plan to have the park road open to Eielson visitor center by Saturday, two days later than expected.

Heavy winter snowfall in the west end of the park and cold spring temperatures have hampered the road-clearing effort, the National Park Service said.

Those who had reservations to go to Eielson on Wednesday or Thursday can receive a refund or take a shuttle trip to Savage River at a reduced rate, park officials said.
