Denali National Park and Preserve (DENA) is considering an undertaking to replace the Ghiglione Bridge located at mile post 41.9 of the Denali Park Road. The bridge, the third to be located over Ghiglione creek, was constructed from 1958-1960 and is a contributing feature of the Park Road Historic District. The current bridge would be replaced with a concrete and steel curved bridge with wooden rails. The new bridge would be located 70 feet north of the current bridge and closer to the original alignment.
