    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - According to Sam Dapcevich with the Department of Transportation, The Avalanche Hazard Reduction mission Thursday went really well.

    DOT crews were able to create numerous small and large avalanches.

    No snow made it onto the roadway, and it was reopened at 5:43 pm.

    AELP is expected to begin repairs on their powerlines that were damaged during previous avalanche mitigation work.
