The Deadline To Change From Studded Tires Extended To May 15th For Valley Residents

With the colder than normal temperatures, the Alaska Department of Public Safety has granted an extension for Alaskans to swap out their vehicles studded tires.

According to a press release from Department of Public Safety Commissioner Jim Cockrell, “This extension provides drivers with an additional margin of safety on icy or snowy roads through breakup.”

Anchorage and Valley residents have until May 15th to remove their studded tires.
