Advisory canceled at 9:30 a.m. Thursday

FAIRBANKS - Strong winds are causing dangerous conditions on the northern portion of Alaska's Dalton Highway.

Travelers are advised not to attempt the 60-mile stretch of road leading into Deadhorse on the North Slope. Winds of 35 mph and heavy, drifting snow are causing poor visibility and slick, icy conditions. Travel is not advised through Friday morning, according to the Alaska Department of Transportation.

The 415-mile narrow, mostly gravel road that begins 90 miles north of Fairbanks is the main supply corridor for the North Slope oilfields. It is commonly referred to as the Haul Road by Alaskans.
