Eagle River Town Center closed due to Nov. 30 quake damage
The Eagle River Town Center building has been closed by municipal authorities, due to newly discovered damage from Southcentral Alaska’s Nov. 30 earthquake.
The Chugiak-Eagle River Library’s website said Friday that it was closed indefinitely, due to damage found during a recent inspection from the 7.1 temblor.
The doors of the Town Center, at 12001 Business Blvd., were closed Friday night. A yellow tag on the door indicated that only contractors are authorized to enter the building, due to damage including brick veneer failure, plate glass breakage and a fire alarm sounding.
The Anchorage Daily News reported Friday that the building’s north and south entrances would be closed indefinitely, affecting the library as well as several municipal department offices and the Eagle River Chamber of Commerce.
Municipal officials weren’t immediately available Friday night to confirm details of the damage.
