Southbound Boniface closed this weekend
Crews will be conducting utility work this weekend, forcing the closure of the southbound lanes of Boniface Parkway.
The roadway will be closed north of Debarr Road beginning at 7 p.m. Friday. The lane closure is expected to be lifted 5 a.m. Monday.
Wednesday, the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities said one of their maintenance foremen noticed the pavement near the intersection didn't look right. Turns out, there was a sinkhole. Crews made temporary repairs and further fixes will be made this weekend.
ADOTPF says the work includes replacing a deteriorated pipe about a foot below the pavement.
Detours will be in place, the DOT says.
