Little Moose Creek Goes Out Of Control

Moose Creek, the spot where the Glenn Highway officially began construction so many decades ago, is typically a mellow little creek. Kids go swimming there on a hot day. Families pull up and wander around on its banks. One year, they even held a Duckie Derbie at Moose Creek.

But this spring, on May 9th, 2022, Moose Creek decided to misbehave. Heavy snowmelt put the mild little stream into a rage.

It ran over its banks, and flooded the nearby Glennallen Library parking lot, and the Legislative Information Office. Then, it went on to flood the old DOT buildings. Then it lapped around the AT&T building. And finally, it poured down into the Bureau of Land Management parking areas and roadways, surrounding some of the cabins, and blocking the roads.

The river had high, swift, dangerous waters.
