Utah national park highway to close for repairs in April

April 2, 2019

ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) — A highway through a Utah national park will close for road repairs for most of April.

The Spectrum reports that Zion-Mount Carmel Highway will be closed for three weeks beginning April 9.

Officials say the road in the park 308 miles (about 496 kilometers) south of Salt Lake City will be fully closed from the Zion-Mount Carmel Tunnel to Canyon Junction in order for a federal highway contractor to completely remove a section to rebuild the road and a retaining wall.

Officials say the east side will be limited to vehicles smaller than 7 feet, 10 inches in width and 11 feet, 4 inches in height between the east entrance and the Zion-Mount Carmel Tunnel.
