US 180 and Highway 89 were both closed for a spell over the weekend due to monsoon rains that hit the Flagstaff area and beyond.

Just north of Flagstaff, Highway 89 was shut down before noon Saturday for over two and a half hours in both directions.

For motorists on 89, they witnessed snowplow-type trucks working hard to move the mud and water in order to re-open the roadway on both sides.

Finally, the rains slowed enough to allow the workers to do their job.

Meanwhile, parts of Kane County in Utah were under a flood watch for much of the day yesterday.

But there were no reports of any major rains, road closings or damage.

Good job to ADOT and the Highway Patrol for working to get the road re-opened.
