False Rumors: There is No Scheduled Road Closures for S. Thorne Bay/Kasaan Road

On New Years Day a massive landslide took out this road that has been closed for a couple of months and has finally been opened and clearing is in progress. Sara Yockey writes that any rumors about closure of this road are false:


There are NO long-term scheduled road closures for the South Thorne Bay/Kasaan Road.

It has been rumored of upcoming road closures to the South Thorne Bay/Kasaan Road for lengths of time anywhere from 3 weeks to 18 months.. Rest assured THIS IS NOT TRUE.

As road work continues over the next few months there will be flaggers to guide the traffic through the construction site. Delays are NOT expected to exceed 20 minutes.

During parts of the construction projects there may be a need to have the road closed for a longer length of time which is estimated to be between 2 and 4 HOURS (120 MINUTES to 240 MINUTES).

I can assure you that when this needs to happen, THERE WILL BE NOTICES POSTED in advance so people know what to expect.

AGAIN, NO LONG-TERM ROAD CLOSURES FOR THE SOUTH THORNE BAY / KASAAN ROAD!!!

Please, if you hear a rumor concerning the construction, upgrades or repairs of the South Thorne Bay Road, call Sara Yockey, Incident Commander and Tribal Transportation Director for the Organized
Village of Kasaan by phone or email.
