Road to Exit Glacier Flood Damage Update

The road to Exit Glacier between mile 7 and 8.6 within Kenai Fjords National Park remains closed due to flood damage. The road is no longer safe for two-way traffic due to undercutting of the asphalt road surface. Visitors can access the Exit Glacier area on foot or bicycle by parking at the Resurrection River trailhead at mile 7.


The park’s priority is to ensure that the road will be fully useable in May 2013. Construction to repair road damage is schedule to begin October 2, 2012. We anticipate that the road to Exit Glacier will close for the winter on November 1.

We apologize for the inconvenience and will provide an update if the road closure status changes.
