Extreme damage to 89A south of Page, Arizona

Please be aware that there has been extreme damage to 89A south of Page, AZ which will take many months to repair. Detours will be through the Navajo reservation and increase driving times considerably. Below is a link to view the damage.

Here is a report by the Arizona Dept. of Transportation with detour map shown. Actually Hwy 89 not 89A that was damaged.

You are welcome, some time news from northern Arizona does not get much publicity as we do not have a local TV station anymore and it was only reported on the Phoenix channels this week.
