MOHAVE COUNTY, Ariz – Traffic on southbound Interstate 15 has backed up for about 3 miles near the north end of the Virgin River Gorge as of 5 p.m., Friday, the Arizona Highway Patrol reported.
The cause of the delay is roadwork currently being done on a bridge in the gorge mixed with heavy traffic, Arizona Highway Patrol Sgt. John Bottoms said.
Motorists are advised to allow themselves extra time to get through the gorge, or use the alternative route on Old Highway 91.
