(4/14/15)—The Alaska Department of Transportation & Public Facilities is alerting the public that the Whittier Tunnel will close early on weekdays from April 20-April 30.
The tunnel is scheduled to close early on Monday, April 20, through Friday, April 24, and again the following week Tuesday, April 28, through Thursday, April 30. The tunnel will close at 9:15 p.m. and will open at 7 a.m. each day. This alternate schedule is necessary to allow the Alaska Railroad to make rail repairs inside the tunnel before the beginning of the summer passenger schedule.
The tunnel will open at 7 a.m. Friday, May 1, and move to the summer schedule that same day. We appreciate your patience while these rail repairs are under way. For more information on the Whittier Tunnel, including schedule and hours of operation, please visit tunnel.alaska.gov.
