Residents beware -- there's going to be a lot more traffic on Kalifornsky Beach Road for the next week.
It's the result of work being that will close the Sterling Highway to all through-traffic between miles 105 and 107 starting at 8 p.m. tonight (Friday).
The closure is to replace the Coal Creek Culvert, though southbound traffic will have to detour onto K-Beach Road about 15 miles ahead of that spot in Soldotna. Northbound through-traffic will be diverted at the south end of K-Beach Road.
The work will see four new large-diameter culverts place at Coal Creek, Crooked Creek, Clam Gulch and Slikok Tributary (creek), and widened highway shoulders. Crews will be working double shifts on the projects.
