Marking the Ice Road

Zack and Brian Guest work on installing Kuskokwim Ice Road markers below Bethel. The official markers for the Kuskokwim Ice Road are provided by the State of Alaska Department of Transportation. The markers are being used on the entire ice road so travelers will know they are on the right road. Silver reflectors face upriver, amber reflectors face downriver. The markers were installed through the Native Village of Napaimute and the tribe’s contractors. (Photo courtesy of Mark Leary/Native Village of Napaimute)
