Road Closure

UPDATE FROM RADIO KENAI SINCE THIS NEWSLETTER WENT OUT: Closures and project cancelled until further notice. See the update here.


In case anyone wasn’t aware, beginning Monday, March 11 through Monday, March 18 the Sterling Highway will be CLOSED at MP 106, with construction between MP 105 and 107. There will be a detour using KBeach. We have been in contact with Dept of Transportation and Apple Bus regard this closure. While the plan is to be completely done with construction before the morning of Monday, March 18th, we have been told they will at least be at the point of flagging (vs. closure) that day. Therefore, we should be able to continue with bus routes as usual. However, the flagging may only be for buses and individuals that live between those mile posts and may or may not be for through traffic. At this point, they cannot say with certainty as progress and weather are hard to predict. Please give yourself extra time that day in order to be ready for the unpredictable.


If you have any questions about the current conditions or route information please contact Apple Bus 262-4900 or DOT Project hotline 262-1042.
