Denali National Park road partially re-opened after large mudslide

The National Park Service is partially re-opening the road into Denali National Park where a large mudslide crossed it near mile 67, west of the Eielson Visitors Center on Saturday. The agency reports that crews working around the clock over the weekend, were able to clear a lane through the one hundred foot long slide of mud and debris. Visitors who had been stranded west of the slide were able to get out Sunday, and traffic was also allowed through again at 8 this morning. Another opening is scheduled for 6 tonight.
