ANCHORAGE, Alaska – The latest following the magnitude-7.1 earthquake that hit southcentral Alaska early Sunday (all times local):
It appears public infrastructure damage from Sunday's magnitude-7.1 earthquake in southcentral Alaska was limited to a small stretch of road on the Kenai (KEY'-nigh) Peninsula.
State Department of Roads spokeswoman Shannon McCarthy says a 150-foot section of Kalifornsky Beach Road dropped about 18 inches in the northbound lane. That occurred near the community of Kasilof (KUH'-see-loff).
Crews on Monday are removing the pavement from both lanes along that section. They will then bring in gravel to fill the gaps and level it off. That work will take a day or two.
This is a temporary fix until crews can address the road this summer.
McCarthy says no damage was found from early Sunday inspections of bridges in Anchorage, Kenai Peninsula and the Matanuska-Susitna Borough.
