Correction: An earlier version of this item listed Quarry Road and Beaver Creek Road as among the roads closed for training during the hunting season.

Johnson Road, Quarry Road and Beaver Creek Road on military land in Salcha will remain open through the moose hunting season despite earlier plans to close it for military training.

FAIRBANKS — The U.S. Army had planned to close the roads from Sept. 17 to Oct. 10 for a live-fire exercise, but training plans have been changed, according to a Fort Wainwright news release.

Manchu Road and Manchu Lake Trail will close Sept. 18-20. All of the Tanana Flats Training Area will be open to hunting and other recreational activities except area 201, which is closed Sept. 17-21 and Sept. 24-28.

All users of Army lands are required to register for a Recreational Access Pass and are required to call the U. S. Army Alaska Recreation Tracking System for updates regarding the opening/closing of training areas. The number is 353-3181 for the Fairbanks Area; 873-3181 for Fort Greely. People on Fort Wainwright main post can dial 353-3181.

Those outside the area can (877) 705-8725.
