Zion National Park’s Red Roads Get Repaved
Contact: Aly Baltrus, 435-772-0160
Beginning Monday, September 16, Zion National Park will be resurfacing its signature red roads. Work will start at the South Entrance. The project will focus mostly on the 1.4-mile section of the main park highway from the South Entrance to the junction with the Zion Canyon Scenic Drive as well as the 6-mile Scenic Drive to the Temple of Sinawava. The resurfacing is expected to take up to two weeks to complete, dependent upon weather and will be suspended over weekend. One lane travel, with traffic control, will be maintained and motorists may experience delays of up to 15 to 30 minutes. The Zion Canyon shuttle buses will continue to operate during the project.
