Anchorage police say a reported rock fall Wednesday morning closed the Seward Highway for about an hour near Beluga Point.

Shannon McCarthy with the state Department of Transportation and Public Facilities, said the fall was reported Wednesday morning at Mile 109 of the highway.

“We have a crew going down right now to assess the situation,” McCarthy said.

APD spokeswoman Renee Oistad said the slide was reported just before 9 a.m., with the road closed until just after 10 a.m. for initial clearance work.
