Access Road For Zion National Park Reopening After Repairs
ZION NATIONAL PARK, Utah (AP) — A highway that is a main access route for Zion National Park is reopening following weeks of repairs following damage from heavy rain.
Park officials announced Friday that the Zion-Mount Carmel Highway, also known as the State Route 9 Connector, will reopen Saturday, with restricted access for oversized vehicles.
The closure was on the park's east side.
Crews replaced one section of the road, with that work including stabilization of a slope and rebuilding of a retaining wall. Another section needed repaving and other work.
Some trails remain closed due to landslides.
