In a Facebook post from Friday morning, the St. George Police Department requested that the public avoid the parkway, especially traveling eastbound, until at least mid-afternoon.

Authorities understand that many people may be using Snow Canyon Parkway to avoid the continuing construction on Bluff Street and ask that the public have patience when traveling through the area.

    It’s Friday in Dixie and we have all the Yankees coming down from the City on Fall break utilizing their short term rentals in Ivins/Santa Clara, the “thousands” bringing their dollars in for the Huntsman games, People already trying to avoid the Bluff street mess and then —–wait for it—-the local brain trust decides to change a functioning traffic control device in the middle of it all. It just doesn’t get any better
