US 89 landslide repair update



Crews have just started work to reconstruct the landslide-damaged portion of US 89 south of Page and, as you can see in the slideshow above, considerable progress has already been made.

Right now, crews are building access roads at the site prior to the start of heavy construction, which should begin later this month.

This project is a big one. It involves moving the roadway approximately 60 feet away from the landslide area toward Echo Cliffs and using rock material removed for the roadway realignment to construct a downslope buttress to stabilize the area.

You can read more about the project’s scope on our US 89 webpage. For a look back at all the work that has happened at the site up until now (the geotechnical investigations, site surveys, community outreach, planning and the paving of US 89T), check out our previous blog posts.
