Fairbanks, AK - Improvement projects are happening at State Parks sites around the interior. The Upper Chatanika State Recreation site recently underwent renovations, and work on the Lower Chatanika site will start later this summer.
At the Upper Chatanika River State Recreational Site, rain and high river levels have been a concern for the last few years. Part of the road through the campsite ran next to the river, and when the river would rise, it created problematic conditions.
Brooks Ludwig, Northern Area Parks Superintendent, says the solution was creating a new road.
