Transportation officials in the Yukon Territory continue to warn drivers of hazardous conditions on two sections of the Alaska Highway.
The road is closed between Watson Lake and Teslin due to a mudslide and washout. One lane reopened this morning between Haines Junction and Destruction Bay, after that section was closed Friday. Officials warn it could close again on short notice if conditions worsen.
