    US Highway 89 is closed between Cameron, AZ, and the Tuba City exit at US 160.
    The road is closed due to road buckling caused by heavy rains. This closure will add approximately three hours to the drive to Lee's Ferry from Flagstaff.
    The open route is from I-40 just east of Winslow north on State Route 87 to State Route 264 to Tuba City, then west on US 160 to Highway 89 North.
    Arizona Department of Transportation anticipates an extended closure to repair the road. More rain is in the forecast this weekend. For additional updates, see http://www.az511.gov/traffic/

    HWY 89 Reopened


    October 6, 2018

    After an around-the-clock effort, a key highway in northern Arizona has reopened late Friday, October 5, 2018.

    The road was severed by flooding late Wednesday night. A detour nearly doubled the driving time between Flagstaff and Page, Arizona, as well as Lee's Ferry, the start of Grand Canyon river trips.

    More wet weather is forecast for Northern Arizona this next week.
