NO LONG TERM ROAD CLOSURES

There will be for the South Thorne Bay/Kasaan Road

There are NO long-term scheduled road closures for the South Thorne Bay/Kasaan Road.

It has been rumored of upcoming road closures to the South Thorne Bay/Kasaan Road for lengths of time anywhere from 3 weeks to 18 months..  Rest assured THIS IS NOT TRUE.

As road work continues over the next few months there will be flaggers to guide the traffic through the construction site.  Delays are NOT expected to exceed 20 minutes. 

During parts of the construction projects there may be a need to have the road closed for a longer length of time which is estimated to be between 2 and 4 HOURS (120 MINUTES to 240 MINUTES). 

I can assure you that when this needs to happen, THERE WILL BE NOTICES POSTED in advance  so people know what to expect.

AGAIN, NO LONG-TERM ROAD CLOSURES FOR THE SOUTH THORNE BAY / KASAAN ROAD!!!

Please, if you hear a rumor concerning the construction, upgrades or repairs of the South Thorne Bay Road, call Sara Yockey, Incident Commander and Tribal Transportation Director for the Organized Village of Kasaan by phone or email.

BOYS BASKETBALL TEAM IN THE STATE TOURNEMENT

The boys basketball team have left for Anchorage to play in the State Championship Games. The first game is Wednesday morning at 9:30am.  The School will be streaming it live in the School Commons.  Please come join us to watch the game!!  You can stream it online to watch at home, but as far as I can tell, the only way to do that is to go through NFHS on line and pay the $10 monthly membership fee.  Come watch with us and you won’t have to pay 🙂

Many
Thanks,
