ANCHORAGE, Alaska (KTUU) - The Anchorage Water and Wastewater Utility has closed Beaver Place between Mink Avenue and 16th Avenue due to a broken water main. As of approximately 2:00 a.m. on Saturday morning, the road was reopened.

“All repairs have been made and all lanes of Beaver Place between Mink and 16th Avenue are now open,” Public Outreach Coordinator Sandy Baker wrote.

A community alert was posted just after 3 p.m., Friday about the closure.

“Crews are currently working on it and hope to have it completed within the next six hours,” Baker wrote. “At this time it is difficult to say why it broke but with the extreme cold temperatures it does tend to lead us down the path that is a factor.”
