PAGE, Ariz. - A 150-foot section of pavement buckled the morning of Feb. 20 on U.S. 89 about 25 miles south of Page, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT).

The road is currently closed. ADOT officials said a geologic event might have caused the damage.

U.S. 89 is closed northbound at US 89A, which takes traffic west toward Jacob Lake. In Page, U.S. 89 is closed at the junction with State Route 98.

Drivers can take an alternate route to Page east on US 160 to SR 98 (about 50 miles) and north on SR 98 to Page. The detour is about 45 miles longer than the direct route.

ADOT does not know how long the road will be closed.

The latest highway conditions across Arizona are available at www.az511.gov.

Awesome, what happened to ADOT, are they supposed to inspect the roadways for this or was there a cutback in roadway inspection funds?
