UPDATE:  ADOT REOPENS US 89 BETWEEN FLAGSTAFF AND PAGE

Traffic restored in both directions following damage caused by heavy rains

The Arizona Department of Transportation has reopened US 89 between Cameron and US 160 on the Navajo Nation.

Flooding damaged the roadway late Wednesday midway between Flagstaff and Page. The flooding, caused by the remnants of Hurricane Rosa, cut through a 30-foot section of US 89 and the earth below it, requiring ADOT to close the highway in both directions to assess the damage and make emergency repairs.

The highway is now open to all traffic. ADOT advises drivers to plan for a reduced speed limit where crews have completed short-term repairs.

ADOT is now preparing for a project that will make longer-term repairs, and is seeking reimbursement through the Federal Highway Administration’s Emergency Relief Program.

Learn more about the efforts and partnerships that made it possible for the roadway to re-open so quickly here.

For real-time highway conditions statewide, visit ADOT’s Traveler Information Site at www.az511.gov, follow ADOT on Twitter (@ArizonaDOT) or call 511, except when driving.
