US Route 89 near Page, Ariz. closed indefinitely

ST. GEORGE – On Feb. 20, a landslide in northern Arizona caused significant damage to U.S. Route 89 about 25 miles south of Page, Ariz., forcing the Arizona Department of Transportation to close the highway between the U.S. Route 89A junction near Bitter Springs and the state Route 98 junction near Page between mileposts 523 and 546.

There is no estimate for when the travel route will reopen, but ADOT has a series of communication tools available to keep you informed about the project.

U.S. Route 89 is closed between the junction with Route 89A and the state ROute 98 junction in Page, Ariz.  Route 89A, U.S. 160 and state Route 98 are open for alternative travel routes.
