DENALI NATIONAL PARK, Alaska (AP) - Officials at Alaska’s Denali National Park say vehicles are moving on a limited basis through an area hit by a mudslide on the only road into the park.

The slide covered about 100 feet of road with debris about 10 feet deep.

Park staff Sunday closed the road at Mile 67, beyond the Eielson (EYE-el-son) Visitor Center, where most tour buses turn around to return to the park entrance.

However, the mudslide temporarily stranded guests and employees at private lodges in Kantishna (kan-TISH-nah) and visitors who rode to the western end of the park road.

Lodge and visitor buses were able to make it through later Sunday.

Park officials say the road remains closed but limited traffic movement would be allowed at 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. Monday.
