VIRGIN RIVER GORGE – A vehicle collision has reportedly backed up traffic Sunday night on southbound Interstate 15, near milepost 17, in the middle of the Virgin River Gorge construction zone. Authorities are advising travelers to use an alternate route.
Individuals seeking to avoid the heavy traffic in the Virgin River Gorge may take Highway 91 as an alternate route. The highway bypasses the Gorge entirely, intersecting with I-15 at Littlefield, Arizona, to the south, and connecting to the City of Santa Clara to the north, and into St. George via Sunset Boulevard.
