DOT&PF 2020 Storm Recovery

On November 30, 2020, a week of record rainfall started in Southeast Alaska that led to widespread flooding and landslides, one of which included fatalities. By the end of the storm, DOT&PF roads in Juneau, Haines, Skagway, Hoonah, and Petersburg had sustained damage at 160 locations.

Emergency repairs were conducted at those sites to secure the roads.

Many of the damaged sites are eligible for Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Public Assistance and Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Emergency Relief funding.

Designs for long-term repairs are underway, with construction expected in 2022 and 2023.
