...CHENA RIVER AT HIGH LEVELS IN FAIRBANKS...

THE CHENA RIVER IN FAIRBANKS IS AT A LEVEL OF 8.9 FEET.
THIS IS CAUSING MINOR NUISANCE FLOODING IN FAIRBANKS. THE BIKE
PATH ALONG THE CHENA RIVER AT THE CUSHMAN AND BARNETTE STREET
BRIDGES HAS SEVERAL FEET OF WATER OVER IT. THE BIKE PATH UNDER
THE PEGER ROAD BRIDGE IS FLOODED WITH SEVERAL FEET OF WATER AS
WELL.

ADDITIONALLY THE WATER LEVEL IS ONLY 3 FEET BELOW THE BARNETTE
STREET BRIDGE AND 6 FEET BELOW THE PEGER ROAD BRIDGE. THIS WILL
MAKE THESE BRIDGES IMPASSABLE FOR MANY RIVER BOATS.

THE WATER LEVEL APPEARS TO BE CRESTING IN FAIRBANKS AT THIS
TIME AND WILL FALL SLOWLY OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS.
