Zion National Park Reopened State Route 9 After Clearing a Rock Fall

News Release Date: November 12, 2021

Springdale, Utah — Late Friday afternoon (Nov. 12) Zion National Park reopened State Route 9 to standard size vehicles. The road was to reopen to oversize vehicles by 8 a.m. on Saturday. The road had been completely closed due to a rock fall west of the Zion-Mount Carmel Tunnel.

The rock fall happened on Friday early in the morning and did not damage any vehicles or cause any injuries. After clearing the travel lanes, NPS staff determined that it also did not damage the road. The rock fall did not affect the road to Zion Canyon.
