Flooding damaged the roadway late Wednesday midway between Flagstaff and Page. The flooding, caused by the remnants of Hurricane Rosa, cut through a 30-foot section of US 89 and the earth below it, requiring ADOT to close the highway in both directions to assess the damage and make emergency repairs.
The highway is now open to all traffic. ADOT advises drivers to plan for a reduced speed limit where crews have completed short-term repairs.
Highway 89 forms a segment of the most direct route between the north and south rims of Grand Canyon National Park.
