If You're Headed To The Gulkana River At Sourdough Creek, The Bridge Is Out

High water this spring washed out one end of Sourdough Bridge and detached the bridge from the road. Sourdough Creek Campground is maintained by BLM in Glennallen and is located at Mile 147.5 on the Richardson, on the Gulkana River.The campground has 42 campsites. 


Alysia Hancock, of the Glennallen BLM office, told the Journal on June 2nd:

"The Sourdough campground road has washed out on the east bank where the road connected to the bridge that goes over Sourdough Creek. Spring thaw, ice and high water eroded away at the road. There is now a significant hole between the road and the bridge. 

We have submitted to our state office the statement of work to get the road repaired. It will go out to bid for anyone to bid on to fix the damage. We are also working on getting Corps of Engineers and Fish and Game permits to do the repair. 

This is a priority for us to fix and we understand how important this access point is for the Gulkana River. 

We are giving weekly updates on our BLM Alaska Facebook pages."
