Taylor Highway Closed North of ChickenThe Taylor Highway is closed north of Chicken. Heavy rains overnight caused sections of the road to washout between Chicken and the junction of the Top of the World Highway (milepost 95). At this time there is no access beyond Chicken. Travelers cannot reach the Junction of the Top of the World Highway and they cannot reach the Canadian border.
DOT&PF Maintenance & Operations crews are monitoring the weather and assessing damaged areas. Repair work will begin as soon as the rain stops.
