Boat on highway

A 30-foot Bayliner sits on the Seward Highway near mile 70 after it came off the trailer it was being hauled on Thursday evening.

Recent snowfalls have already proven treacherous for one stretch of the Seward Highway. At approximately 5:45 p.m. on Thursday Alaska State Troopers (AST) were notified of a boat blocking a portion of the highway at milepost 70. According to an AST investigation, hazardous road conditions caused the trailer towing the vessel to jackknife on a downhill slope, releasing the 30-foot Bayliner to the road. Recovery crews required the use of a crane to move the vessel safely off the highway, clearing all lanes of traffic by approximately 11 p.m. No injuries were reported from the incident.
