Full lane closures are scheduled for Providence Drive between Spirit Drive and UAA Drive, the Anchorage Police Department said in a traffic alert.

Eastbound and westbound lanes will close starting Wednesday for repairs related to a sinkhole on Providence Drive.

Westbound lanes will reopen Wednesday evening and eastbound lanes will remain closed through Friday. On Saturday, eastbound traffic will be reduced to one lane with reduced speeds.

Anchorage police say the sinkhole was a result of a creek culvert damaged in March. More road work will happen in the summer to replace the culvert.
