road closures


Construction is set to begin on a section of U.S. 89A south of Page that collapsed last year during a landslide. As Arizona Public Radio’s Ryan Heinsius reports, officials say the roadway will reopen by next year’s summer travel season.

The stretch of 89A between Flagstaff and Sedona will be closed for construction this summer as repairs to the switchbacks are made. But, as Arizona Public Radio’s Parker Olson reports, the repairs will not widen a narrow stretch of road.

A section of Highway 89 near Marble Canyon that collapsed a year ago could again see traffic by the end of 2014. As Arizona Public Radio’s Ryan Heinsius reports, the project must first be given the go ahead by the federal government in order to receive funding.
