JOINT BASE ELMENDORF-RICHARDSON – The Moose Creek Landing Recreation Area will be closed from July 10 to August 10 for construction.

The Chena River Lakes Flood Control Project staff will be placing rip rap along a groin near the south side of the floodway to reduce erosion from the Tanana River. This breakwater is one of 12 L-shaped rock structures throughout the 22 miles of the Tanana Levee that helps prevent the river from encroaching on the Chena flood control project and other surrounding areas.

This closure will help ensure public safety throughout the duration of the project as large stockpiles of material are hauled and placed.

For more information, contact Justin Kerwin, senior park ranger at the Chena River Lakes Flood Control Project, at 907-488-5404.
