Lowell Point Road Damaged by 13.7′ High Tide and Surf

Waves pummeled Lowell Point Road today, flinging rocks and woody debris clear across the road. Motorists navigated cautiously between the ocean spray, road rubble, deep puddles, and falling rocks. At particularly narrow spots, timing was essential to dart past before the waves returned to slam into the roadside. Several sections were severely undercut by the pounding surf. It was a very dramatic and exciting drive!

Despite the challenging conditions, a Seward Public Works loader managed to scrape the damaged road into a more drivable condition. Thank you, Public Works!
