Important travel information
The Virgin River Gorge
The Arizona Department of Transportation announced Monday that motorists should be prepared for around-the-clock restrictions and intermittent delays on Interstate 15 through the Virgin River Gorge beginning in early April and continuing through spring 2020.
During the first phases of the construction, northbound and southbound I-15 will be narrowed to one lane between mileposts 13 and 16, which will cause delays, especially during high-traffic times. ADOT is advising motorists to slow down and use caution around construction personnel and equipment. Drivers should also prepare to merge into the other lane.
Alternate route: Those seeking an alternate route to avoid traffic can take Highway 91, which can save travel time and reduce congestion in the
Virgin River Gorge
The highway bypasses the gorge entirely, intersecting with I-15 at Exit 8 in Littlefield, Arizona, to the south and connecting to St. George at the north via Santa Clara and Sunset Boulevard. Attached is a map showing this alternate route. St. George Airport Closure The St. George airport will be closed to all flights from May 29-Sept. 26, 2019, for the runway repair and replacement project.
Alternate airport: Please keep in mind that you can fly into Cedar City, Utah, which is the same distance to Kanab as St. George, usually cheaper and the drive is very scenic.
