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.
