Dalton Closes Again

The northern end of the Dalton Highway is closed again. A month after overflow from the Sag River shut it down, spring melt water has made the only access road to the North Slope oil fields impassable again.  As KUAC’s Dan Bross reports, an extended closure is expected as a rapid thaw has inundated the highway.
