The road is in much better condition now, but it’s still a work in progress. It’s open 24 hours now but only one lane with a pilot vehicle. More info on the captions of the photos. They were taken the 15th of April. The very first photo is out of order – I put it in front to show what the road is supposed to look like at this time of year. It was taken closer to Prudhoe, after Jack passed through the hazardous area.
Click on the first one and scroll to the right.
Jack is on the other side of the flooded area now. This is what the road is supposed to look like at this time of year.
Only a couple of these rough areas exist right now with water flowing under the snow and ice.
Most of the area that was formerly closed looks like this, one lane with large berms on the right side where the Sag River is overflowing. Jack is heading north.
Looking to the right you can see the large berms that have been created to hold back the overflow.
Normally there’s several feet of the delineator showing.
Quite a bit of water is flowing here.
Looking to the right where the water is flowing as Jack passes over the open water.
This was on the left side of the road (going north).
