Zion National Park Announces Road Construction

Contact: Marc Neidig, 435-772-0164

Superintendent Jock Whitworth has announced that roadwork will begin in Zion National Park on April 26, 2011. The work will occur on the section of the Zion-Mt. Carmel Highway that extends from the junction with the Zion Canyon Scenic Drive to the East Entrance of the park. Travel will be reduced to a single lane of traffic in some areas. Although delays of up to 30 minutes may affect travel between Zion Canyon and U.S. Highway 89, road closures are not expected and all visitor facilities within the park will remain open. Work is scheduled Monday through Thursday from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and on Fridays from 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. This project is expected to be completed by mid-May.

People visiting Zion Canyon from the South Entrance of the park who are camping, accessing the shuttle system, or staying at the Zion Lodge or in Springdale, will not be in the construction zone. Visitors traveling through Zion National Park from the South Entrance to the East Entrance, or vice versa, should expect delays. Motorcyclists should exercise caution when traveling through the construction zone.
