Highway workers move section of Dalton Hwy. away from so-called blob
Alaska highway workers have moved the Dalton Highway away from a gigantic mass of frozen debris that is reportedly oozing down a hillside, according to the Associated Press.
The adjustment is so that the road doesn't get T-boned by the so-called 'blob,' according to officials.
Transportation officials said a roughly mile-long frozen debris lobe - consisting of dirt, ice and trees - threatened to bulldoze away a section of the road.
The erosion could've knocked out the roadway, located more than 200 miles (322 kilometers) north of Fairbanks, in three to four years.
