ANCHORAGE, Alaska — The state Department of Transportation has lifted size restrictions on vehicles traveling in convoys on the Taylor Highway.
Much of the road between Chicken and Eagle has been closed for the past month due to heavy flooding. However, officials announced Friday that road conditions will accommodate all vehicles, including RVs, buses and trailers.
Pilot cars are leading people from Chicken to the junction of the Top of the World Highway at Milepost 95. The convoys begin at 8 a.m. and noon each day, with return trips at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
The Taylor Highway is now also open to Milepost 105 to allow hunting in the area.
