According to the Alaska Departement of Transportation and Public Facilities, two spots on the North Road, at miles 19 and 35 suffered damage.

At Mile 19.7, a three- to four-inch wide crack 500-feet long is in the road, but it is still passable.

At Mile 35.5, a gash 8-inches wide extends about 150 feet. The road remains passable, but at much reduced speeds.
