[ARCHIVED] Borough Transfer Sites - Removal of hardpack snow begins

Hardpack Removal

January 5, 2021

FNSB Transfer Stations will be closed intermittently through the mid-week (next week!) for hardpack snow removal.

Hardpack removal started yesterday, January 4th, at Farmers Loop East; a few extra containers were placed at the entrance.

Here is the schedule – locations and *completion target dates

  • Farmers Loop WEST – *January 5th

  • North Pole – *January 6th

  • Badger – *January 7th

  • Chena Pump – *January 8th

  • Ester – *January 8th

  • Fox – *January 11th

  • Two Rivers – *January 12th

  • Moose Creek – *January 4th – 8th

  • Salcha – *January 4th – 8th

  • The borough contractor will temporarily close a site completely *OR* there will be very limited public access. There will be signs at each location.
  • Moose Creek and Salcha Transfer Sites are expected to be completed by tomorrow, Wednesday, January 6th.
  • **This hardpack removal schedule may change based upon cold weather, site conditions or other factors. Your patience is much appreciated during this time!*
  • Finally, as Alaskans, we know that hardpack snow removal is something that must be done. There will be times when an entire site is closed or the entrance or exit roads are closed. It is an inconvenience, especially when you are planning to make a stop at the Transfer Site only to find out that it is closed. We appreciate everyone’s patience as SAFETY is the number one priority.
