ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - A hotel outside the entrance to Denali National Park is expanding with an adjacent facility.

Denali Hotel Properties says it has broken ground on a 64-room addition to Denali Bluffs Hotel to be called RiverView at the Bluffs.

RiverView at the Bluffs will feature four cedar-sided buildings fabricated by International Homes of Cedar, Inc. of Seattle. Rooms will have a veranda looking over the Nenana River.

The property’s parent company is Old Harbor Native Corp.

Company vice president of tourism Joe Merrill says room construction will be a boom to the Healy economy over the winter.

He says the hotel staff will expand by 10 positions.

A grand opening is planned for June.
