Road Work from the Arizona State Line to the Intersection with the Gunlock Road
Mile Post 0.0 to 16.7
Road work has now begun on an improvement project to improve the safety of Old Highway 91 in Washington County between the Arizona state line near Littlefield Arizona and the intersection with Gunlock Road on the Shivwits Reservation near Ivins, Utah. Work is expected to cause traffic delays until completion in July to 2017.
Work will consist of extending culverts, installing new culverts, widening shoulders, removing clear-zone obstructions, cutting back cliffs, new signage, new striping and other various improvements. Some overnight and other short-term road closures are anticipated and will be noticed before each closure. Delays of 30 minutes or more will be common due to lane restrictions and potential safety concerns in the work zones. The work area is 16.7 miles long and work crews will be working at many different locations throughout the project. Reduced speeds will be enforced through the work areas.
Please make your travel plans anticipating these delays and closures. The public is encouraged to use Interstate 15 through the Virgin River Gorge as their main travel way during this period of time to allow the construction crews to work and increase safety in the work zones.
