PAGE, Ariz. — The Arizona Department of Transportation has closed Highway 89 near the Utah-Arizona border in both directions because of a pavement problem.
A "geologic event" that occurred Wednesday morning 25 miles south of Page, Ariz., caused a 150-foot section of pavement to buckle and collapse. The Arizona Geologic Society says that event was most likely a landslide.
ADOT has not provided an estimate on how long the stretch of U.S. 89 will be closed in this area. The closest detour will add 45 miles of driving.
