ANCHORAGE, Alaska - The Seward Highway is open again, about 24 hours after an avalanche blocked traffic in both directions.

It reopened at about 2 p.m. Saturday at Mile 21.

The closure stranded motorists, including some holiday travelers, in Seward and blocked access to the city. The state used artillery to loosen hazardous snow and prevent more avalanches in the area.
