SPRINGDALE — Zion National Park began construction of a waterline replacement project Monday. The waterline runs along the west side of state Route 9 from Zion National Park’s South Entrance Monument north to a connection near the park’s Emergency Operations Center. The project will be under construction during the weekdays and is anticipated to be completed by mid-December.
Most of this work will be off-road except for a South Entrance lane closure that will occur between Tuesday and Friday. The entrance lanes will be adjusted at the monument to one lane and will then taper back to the normal lanes just before the entrance stations. Delays at the South Entrance of Zion National Park are anticipated.
This project is funded by the National Recreation Fee Demonstration Program, which uses funds collected from the park entrance to complete park maintenance projects and public service programs.
