Highway 89 Closed After Road Buckles

roadclosedA northern Arizona roadway is closed after the pavement collapsed Wednesday.  The Arizona Department of Transportation says a 150-foot section of US Highway 89 buckled about 25 miles south of Page. 

After investigation by geotechnical engineers, it was determined the collapse was due to a landslide. 

US Highway 89 is closed northbound at US Highway 89-A and in Page US Highway 89 is closed at the junction with State Route 98. 

Drivers trying to get to Page are advised to take the alternate route that will put them about 45 miles out of their way.  That route will take them east on US Highway 160 to State Route 98 and north on State Route 98 to Page.
