...High Water on the Chena River in Fairbanks through Friday...
...High Water Remains in the Rosie Creek Subdivision...

Water levels on the Chena River in fairbanks will remain high
through Friday. This high water is causing flooding of some low
lying bike paths and back yards along the river. This is also
causing low clearance at the Cushman, Barnette Street and Peger
Road bridges in Fairbanks, so high profile boats should not boat
through town.

This prolonged period of high river water will cause ground water
to rise and some basements in Fairbanks may see ground water seep
into them.

Downstream along the Tanana River, water remains over Perkins
Drive, Melanie Lane and Baurick Court off of Rosie Creek Road. May
yards and driveways in the Rosie Creek Subdivision have water in
them as well.

Water is expected to recede slowly along the Tanana River over the
next several days.
